Yes & yes but no: 4 days after unprotected sex is too soon to take a home pregnancy test. Yes, if you take Plan B it will markedly reduce your chance of getting pregnant from that episode of sex. But no, the Plan B will not cause the test to give a false positive or a false negative.

Week after taking Plan B having cold like symptoms and back feels tight as well as sides.... Sign of pregnancy?

Probably not: Those are not typical pregnancy symptoms (though congestion, and fatigue are), but I would recommend taking a home pregnancy test, to be sure, since her period is likely to be late due to taking the plan b.

When I push on stomach it makes a gurgling noise. This happens all over my stomach. Is this a sign of pregnancy? Or side effects of plan b? Help

Worry or plan B: The progestogen in Plan B can affect bowel motility and might be causing your symptoms. However, it is more likely your current worry and stress that is doing this.

Took plan b three weeks ago, on the day my period was due, I just got some light spotting for two days, is that a sign of pregnancy?

Maybe not, but...: Taking Plan B (or any other emergency contraceptive pill) can alter the timing and quality of the current cycle's menstrual bleeding and of the upcoming cycle. One should check a home urine pregnancy 3 weeks after taking Plan B, to make sure one is not pregnant. Also, if having sex, one should be sure to use good contraception all the time, so that Plan B is not needed in the future.

Plan B will: Mess with your hormone levels like nothing else will. If you continue to feel the fatigue beyond 1 month, you should check the pregnancy test and repeat in 1 week if negative. Otherwise the effects of plan B should persist over 1-2 weeks while your body resets itself.
