Plan B side effects


Q: I had unprotected sex on saturday and he didn't pull out on time. I took my birth control that night and got plan b the next day around 13 hours after the incident. I didn't continue birth control after because it was time for my cycle. Its now friday and there's been no sight of my period but bloating and mild cramps. My breast are a little tender, and I'm just a little panicy because my period hasn't come. I know plan b could have really messed with my cycle so how long can I expect to not get my period? Should I just restart my birthcontrol on sunday? And when should I take a pregnancy test?
