Hi Anon

Thank you for reaching out to EmpowHER with your concerns.

Regardless of regularity, Plan B is 95% effective in preventing pregnancy when taken within 24 hours. Since you are so irregular, you should never have unprotected sex. Since you may not get a period to confirm you are not pregnant, you may have to test in about three weeks for confirmation.

You can read all about how Plan B works here: http://www.empowher.com/birth-control/content/facts-about-emergency-contraceptive-pills
