I did know one could get OTC drug testing kits but never imagined there would be OTC blood typing kits.

What the hell, I'll pick one up here soon and see what comes of it.

Thanks, guys. And girls, as I didn't really think of pregnancy and what that entails. Odd thoughts lead to some rather fun threads, sometimes, and while this may not be groundbreaking news it's kinda cool anyway.

I do, not because of pregnancies, which would have revealed it, but because they typed us going into the military. Part of the info for the dog tags. For most people, unless there is a medical reason to know, I figure a lot don't. Other than donating blood, when would someone find out?

Good Question...
I have tags. And my type is posted on them.

But they way I found out was a typical physical. Many years ago. They do blood work and along with that comes the type. They ask if you don't know and tell you.

I took the test, and it came back "Badass"

Is that good?🍺


Edit...yeah, I don't know either. Is it on your birth certificate?

AB- is the rarest in the world, so the fact there are 4 of them in this threads first page is pretty strange, pretty low odds of that occurring, maybe something about that blood type more readily gravitates to the topics of this sort of site?

A-

I had to specifically ask.
At the time, I knew nothing about RH negatives or whatever, and I remember feeling slightly sad that I only achieved an A minus and not an A plus. lol

a reply to: LadyGreenEyes

for curiosity. I, for instance, can't donate blood because I'm not tall enough.

I used to be a blood donor. That's how I found mine out. A+.

You should know your blood type. Getting the wrong blood type can be very, very bad:

An acute immune hemolytic reaction -- AHTR -- to incompatible donor blood occurs suddenly, usually within an hour of starting the transfusion, although sometimes it may occur immediately after the transfusion. Signs and symptoms may include anxiety, trouble breathing, fever, chills, flushing of the face or severe pain, especially in the lower back. If the person goes into shock, the skin will become cold and clammy, the blood pressure will drop, and the pulse will be rapid and feeble. Later, the person's skin and the whites of the eyes may become yellowed, a condition called jaundice. The severity of the signs and symptoms depend on a number of factors, including how much blood the person received, how fast the blood was flowing, and the condition of the recipient's heart, kidneys and liver.

I called the blood bank and asked one time, since I had donated blood once or twice. The lady on the phone was quite confused at first.

I guess people don't usually call up and ask them to look at the database for their blood type.

"Hey, so...um...I was wondering if you could look me up and tell me my blood type. What kind of info do you need?"

I tried to find out and was told it was confidential and I needed the doctor's permission to know!

After futile attempts to be told, I eventually found out by knowing someone who knew someone that mine was A+...the only A+ I ever got..I think the doctor's was F-

B- here.
It is odd to me that so many folks don't know their type.
Science class in public school in mid 80's is where I found out what mine is. Our teacher had the students typing their blood and viewing under a microscope.
