I am terrified. Everything on internet says Plan B doesn't work on or around ovulation day. Need opinion please. Taken 3 hr after on day 14/cycle?

In brief: Don't be terrified

Because that's not really quite correct.
It's not that Plan B 'doesn't work, ' the controversy is that it likely does not prevent ovulation once it's already started (which is not the same thing.) even so Plan B can be effective at preventing pregnancy, so although nothing is guaranteed 100%, your treatment was probably correct.
