In brief: Try

Try not to worry.
The fact that you took Plan B so soon after intercourse, regardless of ovulation means the greater the chance that it will work in preventing pregnancy. Some people experience a period early after taking plan b, others do not. If you don't get your period on the 20th, then you can take an early prediction pregnacy test. Good luck!
