The condom broke and I wasn't able to get Plan B One Step for 2 days and once I took it, I had 0 bad effects on me, people say it's working and others say it didn't. It's only been a couple of days since I took Plan B One Step and im getting my period mid of next week maybe later. Since I've had no effects is there a chance that I am pregnant?
Side effects don't matter. You can get different side effects every time you use it. It depends where you are in your menstrual cycle;how your hormones are balanced.
The only time Plan B isn't likely to postpone your ovulation, is if you're already ovulating when you had sex. In that case, you'd need one of the other 2 methods of emergency contraception, within 5 days/120 hrs of the sexual intercourse. Either the other emergency pill, Ulipristal Acetate, or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor, would be options in that situation.
Most women who have a regular monthly cycle, ovulate around the middle of it. Day 1 of your menstrual cycle is the first day of your period, so if your period is always monthly, it's most likely you'd be fertile somewhere around days 10-18 (most likely 13-16 for actual ovulation). In the few days before ovulation, your cervical mucus changes in consistency in order to save any sperm that enters you, ready for when you ovulate. That means you can get pregnant from sex you had up to 6 days before you ovulate.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body, which can take a number of days. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that.
It's worth monitoring your fertility symptoms each month, to help know when you're fertile.
You won't know if Plan B has worked until you can do a pregnancy test. Don't rely on thinking you've had a period, because you could still be pregnant, despite bleeding. Do a test a couple of weeks after the unprotected sex.
