Time gap for sex after blood donation


Q: Hi Doctor,

I am guy of 24 years of age and my weight is close to 60KG (132 pound), I drink occasionally but I do sex once in a week. Thats about me.

I would like to ask you that I am going to donate my 1 unit of blood tomorrow and this would be my first experience of such good deed but on the same day I have to do sex with my girlfriend.
Please advise me what should be the time difference between these to activity/task or how much should I wait for intercourse after donating my blood.

I hope my concern will be answered at the earliest..

Best Regards
Hunny Shakya
