Very unlikely: It is unlikely that a woman will be ovulating during her period. And a woman on bcp who forgets one pill is unlikely to get pregnant, and won't be at risk of pregnancy on the day she forgets - chance of pregnancy is days later.

My girlfriend and I were having sex 10 days ago. She is on birth control and I was wearing a spermicide condom. The condom broke and I pulled out as soon as it broke. I never ejaculated. She got her period two days later. Could she still be pregnant?

Not likely. If the period was of the usual amount and character for her then that ends the possible risk of pregnancy.
