If you took plan B on day 21 of your cycle, you should have got your period by now. Plan B is basically high dose hormones and one should get withdrawal bleeding with a week of taking it. According to me,you should have gotten your period by now. So wait for a few days and if you dont get a proper bleeding then get a urine pregnancy test immediately. Plan b doesn cause some menstrual irregularities hence,wait a few days and take the test. If you are spotting now,you may very well get your period soon.

The fertile period in a regular cycles is usually between day 11 and day 21.In some cases it may differ from person to person. You mentioned that your cycles were regular so im assuming your fertile period was between 11-21.days. If the plan b worked then your chances of pregnancy are low,but if not,then you have a 20-30% chance of pregnancy. Wait till the end of the week, and take the test. If its positive then you should consult your doctor immediately. During this time you are not protected from pregnancy.So protected sex is a must.
