Yes it could.: Plan B or any other hormonal drugs (like birth control) can alter menstrual bleeding. Something to keep in mind - not to worry you, but to be thorough - is that it *is* possible the “late” bleeding could indicate pregnancy and that Plan B was ineffective (there’s a small chance of Plan B failure). This should be considered particularly if menstruation is delayed 7 days greater than expected.See 1 more doctor answer

Forgot to take last pill of month on fri, took Plan B mon morning. Should have started period tues, haven't. Normal for it to be late b/c of timing?
Pill: It is normal for it to be late or missed totally. Plan b is a progestin meaning it acts like Progesterone in your body. In the menstrual cycle, Progesterone decreases right before menses occurs. Also usually after your last pill, then the progestin drops.

With an IUD, one can stop worrying about Plan B in the future. A urine pregnancy test, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred) or 1 week after missing a period.

It can prevent or delay ovulation, can interfere with the fertilization of the egg or may prevent implantation by altering the lining of the uterus. If you take Plan B One-Step within 24 hours, it is about 95% effective.See 1 more doctor answer
