Not likely: if you took plan be anywhere from 0-72 hrs after sex, it's unlikely that you are pregnant. however, it is not impossible. plan b consists of hormones that prevent pregnancy, and many women experience abnormal periods and/or spotting after taking. this is a more likely cause.

Time and technique: If you did the tests more than 5 days after the missed period and did the tests correctly, you are not pregnant. If you do not wish to be pregnant, please use contraceptive regularly.

Unknown: First of all, using plan B, especially more than once in a short period of time, will trigger irregular bleeding and periods for one-2 months following it's use. It is most effective the closer it is used to the episode of intercourse. Continue to track your cycles, and repeat a pregnancy test closer to Feb 18th. Good luck

Take a test: After using Plan B it is always a good idea to make sure that it worked. Since you had period it seems like pregnancy is not likely but take a test to verify
