Understand that if you are not on a method of birth control besides condoms that you are putting yourself at risk of pregnancy and STIs by going without a condom. Especially when you take into consideration that you are not each other's first partner, I'd highly suggest you schedule a pair of STI screenings if you have not already.
That said, yes, you have put yourself at risk of pregnancy here. Any unprotected genital contact presents a risk of pregnancy regardless of where you are in your cycle. The stinging sensation that you experience could be a variety of things-- irritation from dryness, (especially if you are not using a lubricant with the condom); a result of your partner being too rough; a latex allergy if you are using latex condoms, or even still, it could be a symptom of an STI.
A pregnancy test is accurate 10-14 days after the risk, but also keep in mind that its super-advised that you get STI screenings done if you haven't already, and you may need a vaginal exam if these symptoms do not tend to subside right after sex.
