Received oral with blood

Question: 

Hi, I'm a bisexual man and today I met some guy who performed oral sex on me. I don't know his status. The problem is that I had to stop because I saw blood in my glans while he was doing it. I think all the blood was mine (there was a couple of drops maybe, it's not like it was all red or anything) because I discovered right away a cut beside the uretra tip which was bleeding. I asume he cut me with his teeth while performing.
But the reality is that I don't know (though very difficult) that he was also bleeding or not.
I think all the blood is mine because when I got it out his mouth I cleaned my glans with kleenex and when I squeazed it, a little more blood appeared. And I saw the cut, it was very thin but it was there. And it stings a little, too.
Did I have hiv risk in this situation? What if he was bleeding too (there's a chance, but i don't think so...)? Please help me... right now I'm totally terrified and don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance

Answer: 

Hello,

Receiving oral sex is considered a negligible risk for the transmission of HIV. This means that while there is theoretically the possibility for the exchange of bodily fluids, there has never been a reported case of HIV being transmitted in this way.

The presence of blood, even if it was from the other individual, does not increase your risk at all.

To summarize, you do not have HIV and do not require testing for HIV.
