I recently had a friend over. We sat on the couches and chatted for a while. When she left I noticed a large stain on my couch. I didnt think twice and just grabbed a facecloth and started scrubbing it...with no not even sure i washed my hands right after. After some time I noticed the cushion had dried and the stain was still present. i called the company that warrantys our fabric. They told me in order to know how to remove the stain tey first must know what it is. I emailed my friend and asked if she had any possible idea...She replied that she was very sorry, but she had a mole removed from her vaginal area a few days previous and it was bleeding badly and it was on my couch Am i at risk of anything? I DO have ocd and i worry entirely too much...soooo this isnt good for me??? Im thinking of calling my pcp to ask him?

As far as HIV, you should be fine. The virus is very fragile, and it does not survive well outside of the human body.
