Pregnancy: Plan B is only about 50% effective. The only way to find out if you are pregnant is with a test. Buy some condoms, too, when you get the test. It'll save all this stress every time you have sex, not to mention all the money for Plan B and home pregnancy tests.

Possibly: Taking Plan B can oftentimes throw of your usual cycle. So, your period may come a bit later than usual. If you find that your period is more than a few days late, however, it would be wise to take a home pregnancy test to be sure. Best wishes.
