usually,  you need to wait 2 weeks before the pill takes affect.  Did you read the package insert that came with your Rx?  Did it say two weeks?  You're still in the window to take PlanB.  Can you call your doc and get advice?

Yes you need to wait a week or two first depending on the type of pill. My doctor told me.
