Hi!
If you were my patient, I would have to tell you that there is always a risk of pregnancy.  However, the fact that you used the Plan B properly should be fairly protective.  Plan B works by delaying ovulation, so it usually causes the period to be off.  IF you don't have your period within a week of your normally expected one though, it is important to do a pregnancy test.
Good luck!
