Plan B should be taken within 72 hours of unportected sex. The first one should be taken as soon as you get them and the second one should be taken 12 hours after the first dose. If you take them correctly there an 89% chance of preventing pregnancy. They work better if both pills are taken within the first 24 hours. If you didn't take the second one, you could still possibly get pregnant. The pills will not work if your already pregnant and won't affect an exsisting pregnancy.
Hope this helped Smile Good luck to you.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There are more than 20% chances of pregnancy.
If you miss your periods then straight away go for urine pregnancy test.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
