Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome back and thanks for your query.
Your body will utilize the iron in the blood and body stores to make hemoglobin to make up for what you donated as blood. Most blood banks would accept you to donate blood every 3 months. So you can donate blood after 3 months.
In the meanwhile try to avoid foods rich in iron and all iron containing supplements.
After 2 donations you can check the blood for its iron content and decide on further donations.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.
