Irregular Periods after Plan B

So I know this is probably silly but I just have to be sure because I've heard so many different stories. On November 6, 2015, I had been fingered and I am not completely sure if he had pre-ejcaulate on his fingers or not but I don't believe that he did. He did however touch himself and then touched me but his figners never felt wet to me. After the incident, I freaked out reading a bunch of different sources online and took a plan B about 15 hours later. My periods are extremely irregular and have never been regular during any cycle. For example, I have had periods from 25 days to 60 days apart before. After taking the plan B, I had bleeding 5 days later that was just like my period (moderate to heavy flow) and lasted for 5 days. Having that bleeding put my cycle at the shortest it has ever been being 22 days. I am currently at day 52 and have not had a period. I have taken several pregnancy tests and all have been negative, even the digital one said no. I'm about to start taking progesterone to hopefully jumpstart things back. Although I have had all negative tests, could I possibly be pregnant? Is this a common effect after plan B? I have been freaking out for weeks and I'm just seeing if anyone has been in the same situation as me?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer
The bleeding you experienced was the most common side effect of emergency contraceptions. This was not your regular period. Taking the drug can also disrupt you regular period.
Keep in mind that you can have a perfectly healthy reproductive system without having regular periods. Taking birth control to regulate periods is common but not always necessary unless wish to become pregnant or you have heavy, frequent or prolonged periods
You can trust the pregnancy tests. You are not pregnant.
