Not likely, but: Not impossible. Ask a doctor or pharmacist about the timing for plan b. Then, if you miss a period, do a test. If the sex was protected by condom - you're safer, but pregnancy can be a very powerful force.

Unlikely: If your were taking a pill each day, it is not likely that you would conceive. Breakthrough bleeding does not decrease the effectiveness of the pill.

Low: Very low risk. The abnormal bleeding was due to the Plan B. Sounds like you need to think about a better form of birth control.
