Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Condoms are known to have failures, hence pregnancy resulting cannot be ruled out if the intercourse was close to her fertile days/ovulation time. If she has got her usual periods after your last sexual contact, chances of pregnancy can be ruled out. However, if you had been sexually active after her periods, chances of pregnancy are possible as she becomes closer to ovulation time after finishing with periods. If her current periods are delayed, chances of pregnancy could be possible. Wait and watch for her periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she has not got her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she has got abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
