User avatar Hello,
Plan B contraception can affect your period so the fact that you are late does not necessarily mean anything is wrong, including pregnancy. Also, since the encounter was late in the cycle (unlikely fertile time) and he did not ejaculate inside, the chances are very slim for pregnancy. You should be able to wait it out and if you are worried still, in about a week, take a home pregnancy test (if your period does not start) for your own peace of mind.

Stress and worry about pregnancy often delays a woman's period as well, so there are several possible causes for the delay. I would be very doubtful it is anything to worry about.

Best wishes.
