Could a girls period be late if she took plan b?

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.

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. Because you just took a high dose progestin it may think it shouldn't have a period yet. Hence the late, possibly missed period, .

Had protected sex on Monday (3 days ago). Period was supposed to start Monday. Period 3 days late now. Will Plan B still work? When to take preg test?

Protected sex?: Protected sex means no pregnancy worries. But if still very worried, one can call her doctor today to see if Ella (ulipristal acetate) (a different pill) is available, or if one can get an IUD placed today. 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.
