My girlfriend and I started having protected sex two weeks ago for a total of about 5 times. Last night my condom broke and I was unaware untill it was over. She was waiting for her period to start within the last couple of days. Fourtunately she started today. Does this negate the incident last night?

No, it doesn't.

If she does not wish to become pregnant, she should obtain emergency contraception within 72 hours, but the sooner, the better.

Just an FYI: condoms rarely tear or rip when used properly. So in the future, be sure you're using quality condoms well within their expiry dates. Be sure you're using additional latex-safe lubricant with the condoms, and be sure you're leaving plenty of space open at the tip (pinch it as you put it on to be sure it's not full of air).
