Brief Answer:
You can do HIV tests just for reassurance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic.
I have gone through your query and I can understand your concerns.
Since there wasn’t any condom break, You don’t need to worry regarding sexually transmitted diseases including HIV. And HIV does not cause fever immediately after exposure.
You can run an HIV Elisa test for reassurance, even though chances for infection is very very minimal.
Always practice safe sex to avoid unwanted tension and complications.
Wishing you good health.
Thanks
