Our expert says:
I always wonder how exactly condoms break -they're pretty robust things and don't break easily...unless it has been nicked by nails, teeth or is being used incorrectly. Anyway, it's probably not worth the risk (small though it may be, emergency contraception is available at most pharmacies and can be used up to 72 hours after the accident - so why don't you consider being safe rather than sorry). Pregnancy may not be your only concern, what about STIs? You might also both want to consult with a sexual health professional (e.g. clinic) to check for any STIs, and whilst you're there, why don't you have a refresher on how to use a condom safely to prevent such an accident from happening again.
