Hello Nicole,

Have you had a regular menstrual period since you had sex when the condom broke? Or have you been having only spotting? Is the spotting everyday during both October and November?

I think you need to be evaluated by your doctor or visit a women's health clinic. There is the concern that you had sex with contraceptive failure. If you have not had a regular period, you should have a blood pregnancy test done.
Two months of spotting is unusual and needs to be evaluated by a health care professional.
