Plan B am day periods

Hello, my boyfriend and I “had sex” two days before my expected ovulation. I put it in quotations because he kept pulling out to check and he pulled out before he can finish. I took plan B about13 hours later. About 5-6 days later I got cramping like I was going to start my period and bleed for about two days. It was somewhat light the first day but the second day it seemed to be thicker. I was suppose to get my period on the 16th but haven’t yet. For the past few days (3ish) I have been having some cramping. I can’t get into my doctors until September. I was told to wait around 28 days after the bleeding after plan b. I tried getting into my doctors but the are full until September. I’m trying not to stress because that can delay the period more. If it doesn’t come by the end of the month I plan to take a test. I was using birth control before and ran out. I recently moved so I was in the process of finding a doctor in the area at the time). I took plan B once before last year and never experienced any of this. Im just wondering should i wait until the end of the month to take the test or should I take one now?

Hello. Thank you for posting.

If he did not finish inside you, it's not likely you are pregnant. But yes, ECP can cause period irregularity, this is why it should only be taken in emergencies. A pregnancy test would be accurate 14 to 21 days after sex.
