What is your blood type?

Inspired by a convo in a different thread

A lot of people know their blood types... but many also don't know theirs.

I don't know mine, for example. I know that my mother, maternal grandmother and brother are all B+, however. But I dunno what my father's is so I could be ANYTHING.

My mom had asked them to type it in the blood test I had done as a kid and they wouldn't.

And then forgot to ask in the second/last one I had done a few years ago. Though being prior to a surgery I'm not sure if they'd have even done so or not.


Note to fellow unknowns, it looks like you can get simple home tests via Amazon. (Though now I've got the heebie jeebies over the whole blood/needle part.)

Why didn't they tell her? That odd. Why can't you simply ask for your blood type? Why is it a taboo?

Actually you can do a blood test with a simple pinprick. We did one in high school where we just pricked our finger and smeared it on a dish treated with certain chemicals that react to different types.

O- , In the past I would give blood and platelets religiously, then I had a bad experience with a blood draw and now I having a hard time going back. I need to suck it up and give again.

Not sure. Not taboo, but I dunno. Maybe they didn't want to bother with it, or maybe they just didn't make note of it to test it. Not sure, only my mom told me years later that they supposedly, according to her, "wouldn't."

As for a few years ago, I'd had thought they might have since it was prior to a surgery, but guess not. (I guess it wasn't major enough to be any concern? Unless they did and I don't know it.) And I don't do well with this stuff so my head was elsewhere and didn't think to ask while I was there.

I have no idea and neither does my mother. My wife was asking the other month and I realized I was clueless. I always assumed it would be on my birth certificate but it is not.

I'm in the same boat as Andrew: no idea.
When it comes to matters of my health, I'm pretty lax about that sort of stuff. I don't really care enough to ask for specifics or have all the information.

Apparently, in some parts of Asia, Japan and Korea specifically, blood type is sort of a big deal and even used for horoscopes, therefore everyone or most people seem to know what their blood type is in those countries. There's even theories about them correlating with your personality. For those of you who play video games and watch anime surely must have noticed that a lot of characters have their blood type listed in their profile. I remember being 5-6 years and playing Street Fighter II and looking at the profiles of each fighter and wondering "why do they have their blood type in there? Why is that information relevant at all?"

I had the World Warrior version at the time only. No idea if same happened on Turbo or Super. I bet it did on Turbo but probably not Super.

Another O+ here.

The strange part is, for both me & my Dad both being 'The Universal Donors', neither of us can donate to our state's blood bank due to both of us (and my mother) being stationed in Germany in the early eighties & before people knew what mad cow disease was. (The base we were stationed at, got a majority of their meat products from the UK at the time.)

So, we're possible mad cow carriers too. *IDK*

Mad cow disease? Man I haven't heard of that since the 90s. Then the foot and mouth disease scare came along and finally the bird flu or wtv that was, but I think that was mostly an Asian thing.

Can't you get tested for it or something?

I heard that anyone that has been overseas can get tested. I also heard that a lot of money is required for said testing.

I plan on talking with our blood bank over here pretty soon, since my curiosity has been struck as well.

But yeah, my Dad and I would talk about that sometimes. We assumed that if we had 'it', something would happened to both of us long by now. Then again, we're probably being naive about this stuff.

Same rules apply here. If you lived in the UK between certain dates, you can't donate blood. Mad Cows is a problem because people can be non-symptomatic carriers.

Universal donor is actually O-. The positive or negative is a certain t-factor in the blood. If You are negative you have none and can donate to anyone but cannot receive from a positive. O being most common type can donate to O A B or AB. So an O+ can only donate if the person receiving is also positive. Negative has no effect on anyone.
