Scared. Very afraid. Please answer.
Dec 20, 2006

I received protected "toothy" oral from a woman I did not know, once about 35 days ago, and again, two weeks ago. She provided the condom. I did not ejaculate. After the second encounter, I woke up the next morning with a thin cut on the top of my penis. Also, some redness. The cut and redness went away gradually over the next 12 hours.

I woke up this morning with an unexplained bruise on my right arm, on the bicept. The bruise is yellow and brown. I am afraid because of the cut and redness after the second encounter. Is it possible this bruise is a symptom of HIV? I am literally shaking over this and so afraid. Please answer. Donation on its way.
