In brief: uncertain

I haven't been able to determine the timing involved.
Chance of becoming pregnant is lower during menses. Emergency Contraceptive was taken outside the window for good efficacy.

In brief: Maybe

Next choice and Plan B work best if taken within 24 hours.
Waiting 4 days in general is not advisable. And of course using a condom is even a better idea. It could be breakthrough bleeding from the use of Next Choice as well.
