The morning after pill or plan B can definitely affect your periods and it can even make you feel a little unwell. The cycle interruption can go on for a few months due to the strong hormones you took. But, it does not affect your pregnancy testing so don't worry about that. I would strongly recommend that you find a birth control method that will work for you before you have sex, rather than after. This emergency contraception is not meant to be a method of birth control for regular use. Your doctor or family planning clinic (including Planned Parenthood) can help you get a pill that you take daily or maybe you can find another method that will work. Condoms are quite reliable when used properly, though nothing is 100% except abstinence.
