Can I be a blood donor after having acupuncture?

As there is no regulation of the acupuncture profession the blood donor service has decided not to accept blood from anyone who has had acupuncture within the previous four months. The is due to the very small risk of hepatitis, which can be a problem if proper hygiene procedures are not followed.

Rest assured that we do everything possible to minimise this risk.

Should my doctor know?
