    I have no idea. It's written on a card somewhere, but I'm not sure where it is. My mother knows my blood type, though. It's something common, I know that :p:

    If you donate blood, then they send you a little card with it on.

    You can do it by donating blood, or if you are pregnant, etc.

    So far, 62% of voters are unaware of their own blood type. I didn't realise that many did not know.

    Never bothered asking what it is, not that important anyhoo. If I'm comatosed after a car crash it's not like I'd be able to inform them anyway.

    I asked my doctor and he said he doesn't know, the only way you find out is donating blood or if you're pregnant, i suppose if you have other serious illnesses they'll tell you.

    I've had countless bloodtests, but they don't test for type
