I took plan B on a monday due to a broken condom (I ended my period on that Saturday before). The Friday of the same week I began to have a spotty period and it was fairly light (I wouldnt call it a period because theyre usually heavy for me). the next Monday, which is today, my period ended and I had unprotected sex. I was not planning on it and I know plan B should only be used in emergencies, but I wanted to know if I can still use plan B just to be safe I wont become pregnant. Will it lower the chances of plan b working if I use it exactly a week after?
Is pregnancy possible?

Is it going to lower the chances if I take plan b exactly a week and a day after the first time I've taken it? I know plan b shouldn't be used as a normal birth control.
You can take it again but like she said, it is going to make you irregular for months. It sounds as though you are going to be sexually active, you should think about getting on the Pill instead of blasting your body with huge amounts of hormones like Plan b does. If you were on the Pill, you wouldnt have to worry about pregnancy as long as you take the pills properly.
