Maybe: You took Plan B within the appropriate time, up to 5 days. The sooner after conception you take it the better it works. If your period is missed completely, check a home pregnancy test.

Take a test!: The best answer is to take a pregnancy test. While emergency contraception is very effective, it is not 100% at preventing pregnancy. Good luck!
