Risk of what? Pregnancy or transmission of an STI? There is definitely a risk of transmission of an STI in such a circumstance and I would suggest that if you do not already have an up-to-date assessment of your sexual health, this would be a good time for you both to go for a check up/tests. The risk of pregnancy is smaller at this time of the month, but not zero. If you are very worried, and you are within the '72 hour window' emergency contraceptives can be helpful. However, if it was longer ago than 72 hours, then you might need to take advice from the gynae expert on the Health 24 website (look for Gynae Doc under the list of experts).

Finally, you need to think about why the condom burst. This should not happen, so did you use it properly? (e.g. Did you use it during oral sex which might have resulted in damage by teeth, did you pull it too tight or roll it on inside out? did you use baby oil, Vaseline, soap or any other oil-based lubricants as a lubricant?)
