Cycle may be off: Taking Plan B may definateky affect your next cycke's onset. If more than one week to 10 days late, a pregnancy test is advised. Rest assured that taking Plan B the same day of unprotected sex is very wise, and very effective. A recent negative preg test is also reassuring. Give it a few more days. Up to 10 days at max.

Plan B: This could be related to Plan B. Emergency contraception symptoms can include spotting or bleeding, changes in menstrual flow or your period may be late or early. Take a home pregnancy test & notify your GYN if your period is 7 or > days late.

Amoxicillin: Amoxicillin will not affect your period. If you are late for your period, I would take another pregnancy test in 1-2 weeks.
