Depends: It depends on whether the condom broke or not. The risk is obviously much higher if the condom broke and you were using no other method of contraception. The risk with a condom that doesn't break is 2-3% ( the risk with hormonal methods used properly is less than 1%). If the condom broke it is the same as without anything. That is approximately 25%. Best to use a more reliable method AND condoms
