Hey, my friend needs help. She had sex with some guy a couple weeks ago and she thinks she might be pregnant. Her period's four days late. Yeah so apperiantly she was really 'intoxicated' and after having sex with him she realized the condom was still in her an hour later. Anyway the sperm could of came out of this condom? Does she have a risk of being pregnant?

She absolutely does.

If a condom slips off, she (or anyone) should consider that for that incident the condom was NOT effective birth control (especially if no one took it out right away), and should seek out emergency contraception (and later STD and STI testing, esp. in an instance like this).

It's too late for EC, but it's been enough time for her to take a pregnancy test. I suggest she does that now.

I'd also suggest in the future that she not drink to excess for exactly this reason and numerous others.
