Why do some people faint after giving blood?

Answer

Fainting after giving blood can happen because the blood that has just been donated can take time to be replaced. To help lower the chances of fainting make sure to drink plenty of fluids and eat before you donate. It is also a good idea to stay away from aspirin.
