The probability is almost zero – as the longer the blood is exposed to open air – the bigger the H probability that the HI virus will die. The amount of body fluid exchange that occurred sounds to me also not likely to have been able to infect you. To make absolutely sure you could wait for 3 weeks to pass and than go and have an HIV test done.
