Is the result conclusive?

Hello I am Sumon from Bangladesh and 28 years old. I had an exposure in 2011. I am not sure whether she had HIV or not. I faced urine infection in 2014. Then I went to check whether I had HIV or not. I was tested HIV antibody 1&2 and the result came back negative (I was on antibiotic for urine infection-ciprofloxacin). Then in 2017, due to the cough variant asthma, I had to take antibiotic azithromycin and that time again I was tested. The result was negative. Now my question is do I need to worry anymore? Is the result conclusive? Did the antibiotic have an effect on the result? Can I still have HIV in any way that was failed to be identified by the test?

The result is conclusive. You are HIV negative. The tests we use are 4th Generation tests and they will show infection 4 - 6 weeks after infection. Your exposure was in 2011. And you tested negative. You are negative
