Plan B can prevent pregnancy if used within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
It is most effective if used within 12 hours.
There is always a chance of pregnancy, even with Plan B, but you can do a pregnancy test to put your mind at rest.
It is common for your period to be late. For most women it's up to a week or two, but for others it can be months, especially if they are using other hormonal birth control, or if they weren't always regular in the first place.
The symptoms caused by Plan B, can mimic those you'd get with a period or pregnancy, which should answer your questions about how you've been feeling.
