Can Antibiotics influence Hiv tesing?

Hi, I had an exposure( protected sex condom slipped off ). Few weeks later i got a uninary tract infection . for 3 weeks I have and still been under antibiotics (levofloxacin,ciprofloxacin,clarithromycin,doxycycline and cefuroxime ) i went for an Hiv test 6 weeks after exposure and was negative. I once had extreme fatigue for a whole day during this medication.. My question is could these antibiotics delay immune response to Hiv and thus delay antibody production??? i read most HIV antibody production takes 4-6 weeks and sometimes upto 3 months

No antibiotics will not affect test results and your condom slipped off during with draw and you never had an exposure.

Condom slipped off and was "unprotected" for about 10-15 seconds. Does this count? Thanks
