Yes: As long as you take Plan B within 72 hrs of unprotected sex you are ok, but it would be better for you to use a more reliable form of contraception (condoms, pills, etc).

A 19-year-old female asked:

Will Plan B still work if you take it more than 72 hours after unprotected sex ?

Unlikely: The longer after 48 hrs you take the Plan B pill, the less likely it will work.
