Hi and welcome to the forum!

You like to know why the semen wasn't in the tip part of the condom after intercourse.

The condoms are protection not only from unwanted pregnancy, but from sexual transmitted diseases including HIV transmission. It is put on man's erect penis and physically blocks ejaculated semen from entering the body of a sexual partner. Its tip part is reservoir for the ejaculated semen. Sometimes when that tip part is pressed firmly before it is put on the penis a vacuum may be made and when the semen is ejaculated, the reservoir stays empty while the semen is spread around the penis.

Given the data that you provide, it isn't likely that you have any medical condition to worry about.

Please keep in mind that I provide with medical information only. I am not able to diagnose medical conditions online. Please contact you doctor if you like to have more information about your situation.
