the subject line really explains most of this: today, i noticed something i've not ever seen before... i noticed two tiny circular discolorations on the head of my penis. the circles are roughly the size of a staple wound, if you will. ther eare two of them, and in fact, they are roughly the width of a standard sized staple. the discolorations are colored dark purple/brownish, but too small to differentiate. pardon the comedic gesture, but its as if somebody came and stapled my penis! here is what concerns me: i had a girlfriend with whom i broke up, and we decided to continue physical relations sans a relationship. she may or may not have had a partner in the three weeks we've been apart; she says no, but im not 100 percent sure. today in the afternoon i received fellatio from her and i noticed this roughly four hours after said acts. ive never heard of disease or infection transmission in such a short period of time, but is it possible i have contracted something?

While updating your STI screenings is probably a good idea, I'd say it's more likely that she ruptured a blood vessel or two while giving you oral sex. This can happen if a little too much pressure is placed on a sensitive area of skin- it's the same process that results in hickies, actually. It's nothing to worry about, although it can take a little while for the marks to fade.
However, if you're not sure whether or not you and your partner are clear in terms of STI screenings, then it's best to use a latex barrier for further sexual activity until you're both retested.
