HIv from menstrual blood

A week back, i had my only exposure to a sex worker during a massage. Of course I used a condom but after withdrawal I found blood on the outside of the condom. It freaked me out.. before I could understand i had already touched the blood with my fingers.. does this make me more susceptable to the HIV infection...I washed my hands and my penis immediately but since then I have been in a disasterous state of mind... pls help.

This is not a risk for HIV, doesn't matter how much you touched the blood or where you touched after.  relax.

could anyone guess the chances of HIV contraction thru menstrual blood ... considering the chances of condom break to be 5%.

You wore a condom that was fully intact throughout the entire time of intercourse, meaning that the condom did not break and you were not at risk.  You cannot get HIV from touching blood with your hands so that has nothing to do with the risk of HIV transmission during intercourse.

Do I need to test ??

Does menstrual blood make me more susceptable considering maybe some blood touched some part of my penis for 1 minute or so.

Is it real that if the contaminated blood is exposed to oxygen... it is less of a risk ?
