Hi Sonucool,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. If you are getting a negative pregnancy test, then you are not pregnant. Those tests are super sensitive at detecting the hormones you have in early pregnancy, so if it's not picking it up, you're not pregnant. PlanB is known to mess up your cycle. It's hard to say when you will get your period. You will just need to wait for it, and in the meantime not put yourself at further risk for becoming pregnant so you will know your cycle again.
For more information, please review this article: Emergency Contraception Update, 2010.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
