Plan B is a high hormone birth control pill so it will almost always affect your cycle. It normally cause breakthrough bleeding a few days after taking it but can cause other changes as well.

Stress will also cause your cycles to be delayed and from the number of tests you took, it seems like you are definitely stressing.

Best of luck!

Do not take Plan B when it is not necessary (ie, condom intact, etc). It is a heavy dose of hormones and can change your cycle for up to FOUR months. Read the package insert, please.

You are not pregnant.
