Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to us with your question.

Plan B prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation. If you already ovulated, there was a released egg waiting to be fertilized during intercourse.

If you do not have any bleeding within three weeks of taking the pill, test for pregnancy. That is the only way to know.
