Unlikely scar: Good chance it will swell a bit and look black and blue like a bruise. Apply ice or cold compress for first couple hours then leave it alone. Should heal in a week. Very unlikely to scar.

High: As long as you both have normal function, without birth control the possibility for conception is high. See a fertility specialist if any ptoblems.

120/80 or less: At rest, your blood pressure should be about 120/80 or lower. If the top number (systolic pressure) is above 140, or the bottom number (diastolic pressure) is above 90, you may have high blood pressure (hypertension). In that case, see your doctor. Hypertension at your age is uncommon.
