Risk of Pregnancy AFTER Taking Plan B

Patient : I started my last period January 7th. I have been very regular and am not on birth control because of how they affect me (hormonal issues and NuvaRing gave me hives). On January 15th, I had unprotected sex and took Plan B the next day. On the 18th, I started bleeding and it was very much like a normal period, heavy and lasting about a week. On the 19th, a condom broke, but I thought because I was bleeding and had just taken Plan B I was probably safe. I expect my period right about now if I were on my normal cycle. I haven't found anything about the risk of pregnancy in the days after taking Plan B. Is my cycle just messed up, or could I be pregnant? Thank you.
