No. How long are her cycles normally?

So, her cycles are normally around a month, so this may not be unusual.

Condoms are 85-98% effective, depending on how they're used. If she thinks or knows a condom wasn't used properly, and/or she doesn't see her period for another week, it'd be sound for her to take a test.

No method is 100% effective. But people aren't infallible either, so sometimes not using them exactly correctly happens as well. Either way, it's still sound for her to test in another week if it doesn't show up.
