If : If you got your period and have a negative pregnancy test, then odds are, you are not pregnant. Home pregnancy tests, however, are only 97% accurate 5-6 weeks after the missed or light period (about 4 to 5 weeks after conception). If you are really unsure, you can try taking another pregnancy test 1-2 weeks after this last period (some women continue to have light periods after becoming pregnant, though this is rare) or you can call your doctor for a pregnancy test. You may also want to call your doctor to discuss birth control methods if you are not ready to become pregnant, but are sexually active. Good luck!

Question cut off: Your questions was cut off and frankly it became a bit confusing. Plan B used in September will not protect against pregnancy from occurring during future sex. If your period is late, would go ahead and take a home pregnancy test. Take care.
