On Birth Control and used Plan B, am I possibly pregnant?

I have been on birth control for about 3 years. I usually am very good with taking the pill at the same time everyday. This month I have been off time by a few hours on a few of the pills, but have taken the whole month. The second day into my sugar pills I had sex with my boyfriend unprotect for about 10-15 seconds at the start, and then used a condom right after until he finished. This was my first unprotected sex experience. Because of this new experience I was paranoid and bought Plan B and took it approximately 14 hours later. If I hadn't took plan be or had the short unprotected sex I should of had my period the following two days later. It is now three days later. I have large amounts of paranoia and anxiety right now.

My question is:
A: How long till I should expect my period because of the hormones?
B: How long till I take a pregnancy test or blood test?

Thank you for reading and please help!

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your questions.

I cannot tell you when you can expect your period to start because you have overdosed yourself with synthetic hormones by taking Plan B when there was not a need and especially when you should have started menstruating while taking the inactive pills.

Birth control pills protect against pregnancy mainly by stopping ovulation. The synthetic hormones in the pill accomplish this. The seven day break from hormones (sugar pills) triggers monthly bleeding.

There was never a risk of becoming pregnant when you had intercourse on day two of the sugar pills.

Since there never was a risk for pregnancy, I do not see a need to take a pregnancy test.

Lastly, please consult your gynecologist about this. Your physician will be more knowledgeable.
