Possibly Infected?

Alright, so I was shaving an older man with a cheap "safety razor" I wore gloves and tried to take the required safety measures. Unfortunately, I cut myself on the blade. I did not notice this until my gloves were removed, and there was blood on his face during the shaving. The cut on my thumb stung, but had no visible blood. Much like a paper cut. The razor would most likely have been run under water before cutting me, and there was never any blood visible on the razor that I observed. Are there any chances I contracted HIV. This is also especially important, because I do not want any chances of my boyfriend contracting HIV.
It has been almost a month, would it be a good idea to be tested?
Also, would this be reason not to donate blood for the next few months.

No. Not from this encounter.
