Really Worried

Dear Doctor,

Pretty simple situation.  Had a one night stand with a girl.  We used a condom but it broke and we didn't notice until after we finished.  She is not on an alternate type of birth control.  She was not sure where she was in her cycle but she was not on her period and she said that it had been over for a while before we had sex.  She guessed at least 10-14 days at a minimum.  Within 6-8 hours after sex she took an emergency contraceptive (Next Choice One Dose).  Everything that I have read seems to suggest that that the odds of getting pregnant from a one-time sexual encounter without protection are very low even without emergency contraceptive.  When combined with usage of the emergency contraceptive (most of what I have read says 95% effective if taken within 12 hours), am I worried over nothing?  I am really terrified here re pregnancy (STDs too, but that's a different issue).  It would really help me sleep if you could put my mind at ease here.  Thank you so very much for all the work that you do on this site.
