Hello, so I had sex with a really good friend recently. It was unprotected and he ejaculated in me. I took the plan b pill but I threw up, I've also heard that pill doesn't work on heavier girls? Now my period is a day or two late, and I'm so tired but haven't done anything. My question is am I valid in being concerned about being pregnant?

Unprotected intercourse poses significant risks of both pregnancy and STIs. Plan B reduces the risk of pregnancy when taken properly, but it doesn't eliminate that risk entirely, so yes, there is a chance you are pregnant.

If enough time has passed, you can go ahead and take a pregnancy test (the instructions on the test will tell you how long after a risk you need to wait to get an accurate result). A full STI screening would also be a good idea if you and he are not up to date with your testing.
