Brief Answer:
No risk of HIV or any other infection.

Detailed Answer:
Dear ZVC,

Welcome to HCM.

There is absolutely no risk of HIV or Hep B or HepC in your case as the exposure is non risky because even if the blanket is infected then also survival of virus outside the human body or in dried blood is very difficult and the virus will die within minutes only so just calm down and move on in life happily.

Thank You

Hello, my problem is that i find extremely difficult to wear a condom. I have measured my penis lenght:18 cm and my girth: 17cm and I think it's pretty much average so, why can't I put on a condom without being so tight it cut my blood flow…Any serious advice would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello, I stayed round my boyfriends 2 nights ago and we thought it was time too have sex he's done it before but it was my first time. He never put a condom on and I'm not sure why? He put his penis in slowly but it was very painful. Eventually we had too stop because it really hurt. I'v been sore the past couple of days and I thought thats because I'v been stretched open a little bit. I'v just come out the shower and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood what is this?
