Thanks for posting your query at
When taken within 48 hours, Plan B is successful in preventing a pregnancy upto 95 %.
So the risk of your falling pregnant is less than 5 %.
In fact even less, as you just cannot ovulate on the second day of your period, I would say less than 1 %.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.

Patient replied :

So a month ago I had unprotected sex but I took plan b within 48 hours. I was on my third day of my period when we had sex and we forgot to take out my tampon. About a week later my doctor found a lost tampon in my vagina and it had caused a little bit of vaginosis so she gave me some antibiotics. My period is usually on time or within a couple of days from that date. On my period tracker it says my period is 5 days late. my average cycle is about 27 days. I had sex with someone two days ago and we used condoms. I was wondering what your input was because Im freaked out.

Thank you for the follow-up.
Why don't you just take a pregnancy test?
That will reassure you.

I do not see a possibility of pregnancy in your case.
