I had my period Oct. 22-25 and had sex Nov. 2 and took Plan B that exact same day. My cycles are usually regular, 28 days. I bled for about 3 days five days after taking Plan B. Now it's two weeks later and I haven't gotten my normal expected period. I am 3 days late. Also on Nov 21 my fiancé came in me and I didn't take plan b. He came in me last night as well and haven't taken plan b. Is there a chance I could get pregnant? I'm not sure if I've ovulated since the plan b messed up my cycle.
There's a high chance of pregnancy. From the dates you've given, you were likely ovulating when you had sex the first time.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that. In that situation you'd need one of the other methods of emergency contraception; either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate (Ella), or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor. Either of those things can be effective if done within 120 hours (5 days).
If the Plan B somehow worked in time to delay your ovulation, then the further episodes of unprotected sex that you had could cause pregnancy, as the Plan B will have delayed your menstrual cycle, so your ovulation would happen later.
I'd be very surprised if the Plan B worked, though.
Whether or not you are pregnant could very much just come down to luck, as in... whether you would have conceived by having sex during your ovulation, without the Plan B (which was most likely useless).
You'll need to do a pregnancy test, & then do another in a month's time, due to the later episodes of sex.
If you've managed to avoid pregnancy, then you'll need to sort contraception out, if you don't want to become a mother in the near future.
I'd do this test regardless of any bleeding you get, as Plan B can cause bleeding, as can implantation of an embryo.
