I took a Plan B on November 14 (about 2 days before ovulation) and I didn’t ovulate. I’ve just had another incident of a broken condom and what to know if I need to take another one. Under normal circumstances my period should come in a week but I’m worried that if the Let Plan B delayed ovulation, then I don’t have the proper cycle dates anymore.
You're right to be worried. You will need emergency contraception.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. As you don't know by how long it delayed your cycle, you can't guarantee that you're not ovulating or about to.
You therefore need one of the other methods of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella), or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
Either of those things can be effective if done within 120 hours of the unprotected sex.
