Is pregnancy possible despite taking Plan B emergency contraceptive pill?
Very low chances of pregnancy.
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Since she has taken plan B within 2 hours of unprotected sex, the chances of pregnancy are less than 5%. The next periods can be delayed by a few days due to the effect of plan B.
It is right now too early to get a positive pregnancy test by urine test. If her periods are delayed by more than five days then you can do a urine test again to completely rule out the pregnancy.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

It is too early to be conclusive.
Thanks for writing again.
A blood test taken ten days after intercourse may not be conclusive as the ovulation can happen late and a sperm can survive for upto six days. It is better to test again after her periods are overdue.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
1) Age does not decrease your fertility so as to cause difficulty in conception in one shot if she is having her regular periods and is otherwise healthy.
2) The delay in ovulation depends on the time of the cycle when the pill was taken. If the pill is taken 4 days before the expected date of ovulation then the ovulation can be delayed by a week or so. It varies from individual to individual and exact date is difficult to calculate.
