The symptoms of ARS develops two to six weeks after transmission, not two days later.

In addition, the fact she required antibiotics would indicate a bacterial, not viral infection. Antibiotics are totally useless in treating viral infections.

If all your previous encounters were protected...and the condom was used accurately and did not break or tear...there is nothing you could pass on to her.

If you remain concerned that YOU might be infected (highly, highly unlikely considering what you've posted here), then consider a screening test to allay your fears.
