Thanks for your question,
I can tell that this has been worrying you and I understand why: it's a new situation with unknown variables.
HOWEVER, it sounds like your risk for HIV was low.
Unprotected oral sex is very low risk for HIV. While your sex partner did enter you, it was very very brief. I'm not surprised that you bleed a little, since it hurt. But your butt would've only had contact with his penis briefly.
So where does this leave us? We would recommend that you get tested regularly for HIV/STDs, just like all sexually active people. Just to know if you caught something from this sexual episode, we'd say wait 3 months. Just so that you know your status for all things, for sure. But again it sounds like risk on the lower side.
In the meantime, it'd be helpful for you to talk to other people who have a variety of sexual interested, like yourself. You can find many resources online!
Hope this begins to help you feel better :)
