Unfortunately no one can know if you're in the clear. It's only when you get your period or do a pregnancy test when your period is late, that you'll know.
Plan B is not 100% guaranteed to prevent pregnancy, but it is around 95% when taken within the first 12 hours after unprotected sex.
You don't always get symptoms/side effects when you take Plan B. It seems to depend where you are in your cycle when you take it, & everyone is different, too. I've used it a few times, & on each occasion had totally different experiences with it. I didn't always bleed after using it, & sometimes it made me exhausted & very depressed, whereas on other time I bled within a few days of taking it (very heavily), but didn't have many mood changes.
You might get some bleeding or spotting after using it, your actual period may be a week or two late, & you may get other hormonal symptoms, such as those you might get with a period or pregnancy (leaking/sore breasts, mood swings, cramps, back ache etc).
