So last month I took Plan B and my period came three days later but it was 12 days early. My boyfriend and I have had sex since then, but we are positive that nothing wrong happened with the condom. But I'm four days late. Is it stress? Or plan B side effects? Or what do you think? Please help!

If you used a condom for all direct genital contact properly, and it did not slip off, break, or was not removed correctly, then there's no reason to presume it failed.

Plan B can impact cycles, sometimes for a few cycles, not just one. And sometimes those changes can cause a shift in cycles, period, where when your periods come after taking it changes, full-stop, basically kind of resetting your cycle to new dates.

How much longer do you think my period will be delayed for?

That really isn't a question we can answer, as we cannot predict when your period will come. If you are feeling stressed, it might be best to focus on some self care: Self-Care a La Carte
