Are you using extra lubricant with your condoms as advised? If not, from here on out, make that part of the deal: if you didn't that's likely why the condom broke. Too, I recall your partner saying he'd never used condoms before until you, so do be sure he's putting it on properly, k?

Unless you're charting daily, you really can't know when you ovulate. But that's irrelevant here anyway: you had a condom failure, which presents a pregnancy risk, and you don't want to be pregnant, so you got EC. That was the smart thing to do, and that given, your risk of pregnancy will now be very low.

Some spotting or bleeding is fairly common with emergency contraception, yes.
