User avatar Hello,
Don't worry. If you got your period after the described incident, you are not pregnant. Your symptoms are consistent with the hormonal fluctuation that can occur with taking plan B. Things should settle down.

Almost all women experience missed or irregular periods at times. Dark blood just means it is old blood. Don't worry.

Best wishes.
