Hello AngieC,

Try to relax because stressing out will only cause more of a delay in the start of your period. There is nothing you can do now to change things.

If you do not get your period within three weeks of taking Plan B, test for pregnancy. With results, you can get on with your life and do whatever you need to do.

Hello AngieC,

When taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex, Plan B is about 95% effective in reducing the risk of pregnancy. Depending upon where you are in your cycle, Plan B may either prevent or delay ovulation or may interfere with fertilization of an egg.

Plan B can cause your period to start earlier or later than normal for you. If you do not get your period within three weeks, get a pregnancy test to make sure that you are not pregnant.
