No risk at all: I think you misunderstand your pill and how it works. People on the pill are not fertile during the placebo interval; if you are taking the pills as directed, you are completely protected throughout your cycle, including those days on placebo. Condoms are a good idea if at risk for HIV and STDs, but are entirely unnecessary for contraception any time during your cycle. Don't worry about it.
