Family practice : Too soon for HCG testing. Wait at least 2more weeks. By then you may have another period.

It is better to wait 4-5 days after a missed period to do a pregnancy test.

Seems unlikely: Condoms are pretty effective at preventing pregnancy. May be a bit early for a beta. A positive beta would be real but a negative would require a retest. I would wait until next week i think...
