Okay, the situation is as follows:
My boyfriend and I had sex without a condom briefly this afternoon, but he pulled out and used a condom for the rest of it. I am also on the pill and have not missed any or taken any late this pack. Since he didn't come and the pill has been used properly, I'm thinking I'm pretty safe. Nonetheless, I took plan B about 3 hours after sex. We're both std tested and free so I'm fine for that.
First question: Have I been careful enough in terms of pregnancy rist? Anything else I need to do?
Second question: my boyfriend couldn't ever actually "finish"... I asked him about it and if there was something I could do better for him. He pretty much said he didn't know why it happened. Can you provide any explanations on this? I'm just really confused because it's never been a problem before

If you've been on the pill for more than a month and have been using it correctly, your risk is at less than 1%. So, that, plus the fact that your partner did not ejaculate in you and you also got EC means that you don't need to be worried about a pregnancy risk.

As for your second question: There really isn't a problem. Bodies aren't machines and they don't always behave exactly the way we expect them to. Plus, orgasm should not be a requirement in sexual activity - sex can be plenty fun without it. So, this is perfectly fine and not a cause for concern at all.

Following up on my previous situation:
my withdrawal bleed is several days late, which I know can be common with plan b, but how late should I expect it to be?
It's been over 2 weeks since I took plan b, so I'm a little surprised that it's still impacting my cycle. How long does plan b usually last? I didn't really feel any side effects from it when I took it, so I wasn't even sure that it worked
Basically, at what point should I be concerned that my withdrawal bleed hasn't happened?

There's really no telling when your bleed will arrive, and it's actually possible for plan B to make your cycle wonky for two or three cycles. You can take a pregnancy test to be sure, but odds are low you need to worry about not having the bleed.
