Is pregnancy possible despite taking oral contraceptive?

Today s Feb 1st, I had intercourse Jan 7th, took a generic Plan B pill about 41-42 hours later after intercourse, I had some cramping after taking it and a little the next morning. After that I thought I was okay, then on Jan 23, I started spotting, thinking I began my period but it didn t get heavy as normal and only last for about 4 days but I wouldn t call that a period. Also, just one time within this past week there was a bright orange color on the tissue after wiping. Now I m two days late from my actual starting date and kinda worried. I cant go to the doctors because I don t have insurance. But just out of curiosity, what s the chances of pregancy? Is the Orange normal at all? Any iformation will help.

Thanks for asking in healthcaremagic forum
No method is 100% accurate. There are instances where pregnancy have occurred with contraceptives. As you had periods though with little less bleeding. Pregnancy is unlikely. Anyways go for urine pregnancy test kit in your home with morning urine sample for confirmation. All the best. It costs less.
