No: 48 hours is not too late to take Plan B. However, if what you're saying is that 2 days after the unprotected intercourse, you also started your period then very likely you aren't pregnant. In addition, pregnancy less common at age 45. If your cycle is regular and it was truly 2 days before your period then almost zero chance of pregnancy. Hope that helps.
