Check preg test: First step is to check a pregnancy test and confirm that Plan B worked. If positive you will need to see your doctor right away. If negative then schedule a routine visit to discuss more effective birth control and options that would help with menstrual cycle control. The first period after Plan B is often a little off. Many patients take Ibuprofen to help with cramping and to cut down bleeding.

A 19-year-old female asked:

I took Plan B 2 days before I was supposed to get my period. It's now 3 days late, is it likely that I'm pregnant?

No: The plan B is likely the reason for the delay. You do need to start a reliable method of contraception to save yourself the worry in the future.
