If you are that sexually active, plan B isn't what you need for the future. Why not use some form of birth control? Its far more effective then Plan B, and Plan B wasn't meant to be taken like that. Plan B is not effective for sex after you take it. Looks like your only option now is to take more. You will have side effects and bleeding when its not time for your period, and your period will be about a week late.
Plan b delays ovulation for a few days (if you have not already ovulated) If you have already ovulated, it doesnt do anything. It will not terminate a pregnancy already in progress. It doesnt kill the egg or the sperm. It just hopefully delays ovulation until the sperm have all died. (Sperm can live and fertilize an egg for about 3 days inside a woman's reproductive system) This is one reason why a dose of Plan b doesnt "cover you" for a couple days. Kaismama is right. Emergency contraception is not the right thing for you. You need to see a gynecologist or the local family planning clinic and get on a reliable form of birth control. Oral contraceptives (like the Pill) prevent ovulation from happening (when they are taken correctly) and prevent pregnancy 98-99.9% of the time (nothing is 100% effective except to not have sex).
You'd be much better served by taking regular daily birth control pills. Plan b and other emergency contraceptives are not designed to be used as your primary form of birth control. They just are not effective enough for that. At this point, you are just going to have to wait it out and see what happens. Having sex without protection is like Russian Roulette and sooner or later you run out of luck. It is not worth chancing it if you are not ready to be a mother.
