Plan B is emergency contraception. It is meant to be as a last resort when you've had unprotected sex.
For more information, please review these articles: Emergency Contraception Update, 2010, Am I Pregnant after Dry Sex, Making Out with Clothes On? and Outercourse, Dry Humping, Dry Sex and The Misconceptions of Sex
Hope this information helps. Educate yourself so you can advocate for your health and be assured when engaging in sexual activity.
Let us know if you have additional questions after reviewing the articles.

In theory, yes, it could, even if the chance is obscurely minute. If you're that worried about it, try plan B.
