Plan B can disrupt..: ..your normal cycle. It is, after all, a hormone based contraceptive. Consider this "heavy bleeding" to be an early period. The interval between this period and your next period should be what you would normally expect. Hope this answers your question.

Probably should: You likely are fine but it is not 100% effective. So, while you likely are not, after about 2 weeks from the event, I would take one to be sure.
