i would imagine that the 72 hours is a general, kind of blanket statement.  it probably works best within the first 3 days after unprotected sex and then gets less and less effective after that.  I'm no expert on the subject, but that would be my educated guess :) you should get your period soon after taking it, i believe.

Yep. Your 72hours were up. They ended Thursday. If you ovulated then chances are you got pregnant. Good luck

Plan B stops ovulation from happening, so that is why you're supposed to take it within 72 hours of sex (the spermies won't live much longer than that anyway). If you did ovulate, taking Plan B makes you much more likely to miscarry. My sister-in-law got pregnant after taking Plan B, but then she had a miscarriage after less than a month of being pregnant.
