And I went to take a Plan B within 24 hours, and I got my period 3 days early and had a regular period . Should I be worried I'm still pregnant this up coming month?
If you're not pregnant then you've been lucky, because Plan B was not the best method of emergency contraception in your scenario.
Plan B works by delaying your ovulation until the sperm leaves your body. If you're already ovulating then it can't do that.
From the dates you've given, & assuming you have a regular monthly menstrual cycle, you'd have been likely ovulating when you had sex. In that case you'd need either the other emergency pill called Ulipristal Acetate or to have an IUD fitted by a doctor.
You may have been lucky & caught it just before your ovulation started, or just after it happened, but it's a big risk.
Do a pregnancy test to be sure.
