Not knowing her fertility cycle, we can't give you a percentage, and even then, it'd be iffy.

You have had both pregnancy and STI risks. if you don't want to have those, when you do not have condoms, you need to choose not to engage in sex, and it really is that simple.

If it has been less than 120 hours since that risk, she can obtain emergency contraception if she likes to reduce her pregnancy risk.

We did it on monday i think she finished her period on the sunday. So the risk is quite low then?

No, it's not.

Again, unless she charts her fertility -- that means charting cervical mucius or basal temps daily, not merely counting days in a menstrual cycle -- we can't know when she ovulates, but the average woman is most fertile between day 10 and day 15, and sperm can hang around in a woman's body for several days, so if she was average it's entriely possible you took that risk during a fertile time.

Regardless, the risk from unprotected intercourse, especially for younger women who can ovulate erratically, would never be considered quite low.
