The foods you ate would not interfere with the action of the antibiotics. Safe sex: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/safer-sex-guidelines

Onset of discharge after only 2 days makes gonorrhea almost certain, and gonorrhea is commonly transmitted by oral sex. Chlamydia is not, but it is routine to also treat most gonorrhea for chlamydia.

In any case, Dr. Singh is correct: no foods interfere with effectiveness of these treatments.
