Have you ever donated blood plasma?

Have you ever donated blood plasma (not whole blood, but the plasma fraction of it)? If so, what have been your experiences with it, good and bad? If you haven't, why not? I have donated plasma before and gotten money for it, but right now I am taking a break from it because my back sprain is flaring up very painfully, making it impossible right now for me to lie on the donation bed for that long.

Sorry to hear the back sprain and the pain your feeling.. I haven't donated my plasma before nor the whole blood itself. I just am not capable of doing this because of the many factors. But i have always wanted to donate my blood, i know there are a lot of people who are in need of blood right now.

I am sorry to hear that you are not able to donate whole blood or blood plasma. I know that there are many reasons why some people can't donate. Thanks for helping me raise awareness of donating blood plasma. Whole blood and blood fractions are always in dire need. Even if you can't donate, you can still help to raise awareness.
