Question: i took Plain B on top of my birth control because I freaked out after I had sex last... What would the effects be of taking the Plan B pill while on birth control? Could it delay my period until next month?

Brief Answer:
Do not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Taking plan B within birth control pills will not have any major adverse effect.
However, since plan B has a side effect of delaying the next expected periods by 2-3 weeks, so your periods can be delayed by this much time in this cycle.
I suggest you not to worry.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
