Once you are pregnant, then you won't subsequently get your normal period, although some women do experience some bleeding during pregnancy.

However, if it's been at least 10-14 days since the condom breakage, you can get a definite answer right now by taking a pregnancy test (which is much more reliable than looking for symptoms like morning sickness).

If you took emergency contraception as soon as possible (and good for you for being so smart ), then your risk is low anyway. But hopefully a test will put your mind at rest.
