Does PEP cause delay?

Good morning doctor thanks for your awesome work. I I needed to ask your opinion on wether PEP will cause a delay in acquiring hiv. I had genital apposition with a female masseuse of unknown status. There was no penetration but my penis did rub on her outer labia / in between. She used a lot of oil and lotion and I did cumthrough a handjob. I tested negative at baseline and persuaded my doc for PEP and was on treatment within 48hrs. I then tested negative at 6 weeks (2weeks post pep) and again at 8 weeks (4 weeks post pep). Are these results indicative I plan on going for a test again which will be at 12 weeks. Please let me know you thoughts if I am being over anxious. Thanking you in advance

You are being over anxious. You are HIV negative. You were at no risk of HIV infection
