I got my 3 days early after taking plan b. A week after my period, a pregnancy test came negative and almost a month after the intercourse, another test also came negative. Does this negate all chances of being pregnant?

If it has been 4 weeks after you had intercourse (and have not had unprotected sex since that time), with another test showing negative, it is most likely that the pregnancy test would have detected any "pregnancy hormones" by this time, and you can depend on the results. They are about 99% reliable at this point, and your next period may also be slightly irregular (that is the side effect of Plan B, unfortunately).

Does that help? We can't tell you with 100% certainty that you are not pregnant, unfortunately, but the information you provided does sound like you can trust in your negative pregnancy test results. When are you expecting your next menstrual period?

If it doesn't come right on the 14th or therabouts, don't panic, OK? As Alison said, a side effect of Plan B is that it can affect your period for a month or two afterward. From what you wrote, it sounds like you can trust the pregnancy test you took that was negative. Hang in there, I know it's really hard to wait to find something like this out for sure.
