I had unprotected sex the day after valentines day. I took the Plan B one step pill the day (12hrs) after. It is now a little over one week since the unprotected sex occured and I haven't gotten my period. I did however have spotting occur last Wednesday and Thursday. I am also taking aspirin and vitamin C to prevent pregnancy. I normally receive my period any time between the 22 and the 5 of the next month. I am worried that I may be pregnant. That is all I can think about. I have already decided to get the vacuum abortion if I am pregnant.
Has the Plan B one step failed for anyone?

I'm not sure if this would have an affect on it but I also changed my diet lately. I have been eating healthier rather than fast food. I wasn't sure if that would have an affect or not. I am also going to start doing the diet body by vi will that have an effect?
Aspirin and vit c do nothing to prevent pregnancy. Plan B can mess up your cycle for months. Its not unusual for it to be a week or two late. Why don't you get on a regular birth control so you can avoid the nerves of worrying you're pregnant and the shock to your system with plan B. Plan B can also give you symptoms like you were pregnant.
The time to worry about pregnancy is BEFORE you have sex, not after. You took Plan b in plenty of time to be effective. Plan b doesnt always bring your period on. Some women will spot a bit after taking it. It will often cause irregularity for months after taking it. It also will cause the same symptoms pregnancy does. Plan b is a huge blast of hormones designed to keep you from ovulating. Try to stop worrying because that will affect your cycle too. Most likely you will be fine. If your period doesnt show up by this time in March then you should do a pregnancy test. If it is negative, then you will know it is
just the Plan b messing up your cycle. It is too early to test until then. Once you find out that you are not pregnant you should think about getting on a regular birth control method if you are going to be sexually active. Use condoms until you get on another method and get through the initial waiting period for the method to take effect. I'm not sure where you got the idea about the aspirin and Vitamin C but those wont help keep you from getting pregnant and aspirin is not good for you to take when you dont need it. If you are younger than 18, it puts you at risk for Reyes Syndrome which can be fatal and even if you are over 18, it elevates risk for stomach bleeding. If you are pregnant and taking aspirin and you get an abortion, it puts you at risk for severe bleeding after the surgery so stop taking the aspirin-it is not doing anything good for you.
