Recently, i had full protected (Latex Condom) vaginal intercourse with an HIV positive female partner. After sex, i removed the condom and washed up with just water, and got dressed. About an hour later, as i was about to pee; i noticed a blood patch on my underwear. This is because we had not fully undressed during the episode (and her period came), and i believe my penis would have come in contact with this patch of blood on my underwear. The tip of my penis was resting on this patch of blood on my underwear. Please help identify the risk profile of contracting the HIV virus this way, and advise if there are any measures i could take immediately to prevent this.
You didn't have an exposure. HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
Apologies for sounding like a persistent nutcase, but i have some sypmtoms that i will appreciate your views on. I have sudden fatigue, a feeling of being unwell, and a rash on my right cheek. No other symptoms.

New Situation: Had protected insertive vaginal intercourse with partner who is HIV positive. Used a latex condom throughout. However, after ejaculation i noticed some semen had slipped through the top of the condom at the end of my penis shaft close to my groin area. We had continued sex after ejaculation and this amount of semen had come in contact with her labia as intercourse came to an end.
Is it possible that the virus could have passed through this spilled semen that had escaped and was on my shaft/groin area; back into the condom and my penis? In other words, could this semen act as a medium to transport the virus back into the condom and into my urethra/tip of penis?
No, HIV isn't transmitted through such tortuous mechanisms. HIV is a virus- it is not motile and infection requires direct inoculation inside a body cavity, as in unprotected contact. Your scenario is completely unrealistic.
