I know it's not smart to take Plan B three times. I took it three times over the course of a few months which is why now I went to the gynecologist to get birth control but I can't take the birth control until I start my period and I haven't started it yet and I was with my boyfriend and we had sex with a condom but then he took it off and put it in once without the condom which I immediately told him not to do but now I am about two weeks late for my period. I took Plan B the beginning of August right after my period ended and I started bleeding and a good amount 2 days later it's now September 15th and I still haven't gotten my period and I want to know if it's because I took a third plan b or I could be pregnant. My boyfriend didn't ejaculate at all but I would just worry because he did put it in once without a condom
Took Plan B three times had sex before I was supposed to get my next period now on 13 days late?

I took Plan B within 24 hours of having sex
Pregnancy or plan B could be the reason. Only a pregnancy test will tell you.
For future reference, Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that. You'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception.
As you've used this Drug lots over some months, your hormones will be all over the place, & you won't know which episodes of bleeding were true periods that came as a result of ovulation, or whether it was the artificial hormone in Plan B. You therefore won't know when you were fertile. It's likely that if you aren't pregnant now, you will be soon, if you don't start using regular contraception. It'll just be luck if you're not pregnant. Plan B is not as effective as regular hormonal birth control.
