Okay my fiance and I had sex August 19th I was also on day 3 of my period I got Plan B on the 20th took it (day 4 of my period) I stopped my period on the 22nd and well I've been waiting. My period has not returned yet and I'm starting to get worried. Should have had period by the 17th and nothing yet and I'm usually very regular.

Thank you! I finally got my period though I was so stressed that's probably another reason I was late.

Hi tarasaurusrex,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Most women experience changes to their next period after taking an emergency pill.  You might need to take a home pregnancy test or see a doctor, in order to know if you are pregnant.  If you were on your period, most likely you are not pregnant.  A woman can only get pregnant while ovulating, that's usually between day 11-21st from the first day of your period. 

Here are some resources for you
