  • After that, the medical professional will insert a thin needle into the vein to collect the blood sample. At this time you may feel a pinching sensation.
  • Once they collect the required amount of blood in the test tube, they will remove the needle and put a cotton ball on the site to stop the bleeding.
  • After that, they will put a bandage on the site.

Usually, the entire blood collection process will take less than 5 minutes.
