You're not my doctor or a magician but... should I take plan B?

I had drunk but protected sex last night. (yay!) I haven't had sex since I had an abortion 2 years ago. (not so yay!) I am also dealing with secondary amenorrhea due to diet. I know I'm being insanely nervous for no reason but now just to be safe I want to take Plan B. Is this ok? Will it make the Amenorrhea "worse"? Is that even possible? So. many. things. calm me down?

To make an extremely long story "short"
I had a medical abortion 2 years ago followed by a very awful breakup. After that it was business as usual, I regained my monthly normal period and checked out fine at the OBGYN etc etc. a few months after that, I decided to start "clean eating" and exercising. I lost my period and have not had one for almost a year which I'm working on fixing. I've been to various doctors but still have not gotten monthly period back. I was preparing to get on BC to fix this next month. but ON to my question. Last night I had sex. for the first time in 2 years since the abortion incident. yep. 2 years. 2 long lonely-stay at home and watch lifetime on friday night- sex free years.
He used a condom. I have no reason to believe anything went wrong or that there was a hole or anything. But we had been drinking and I'm being crazy and paranoid because of what happened last time. I went and bought Plan B and wanted to take it. Just in case. I'm not on birth control. I know I probably do not need to but I'm obsessive and nervous and feel like I should take it. just to shut my mind up! But now that I'm about to take it I'm worried that it could cause issues because I have Secondary Amenorrhea and that it could just delay or make that worse. (Is that even possible?)
This is basically just a mess and I'm being crazy and afraid and I'm kind of in shock that it even happened last night.
Someone just tell me to take the pill, eat ice cream and that it will all be ok.
It's been a rough past 2 years. I'm ready to start dating and having fun again. I just need to stop being so nervous about it all.
but really, ladies, has anyone had anything similar happen to them?
Oh and side note:
any tips on how to get over the fear of having sex again after abortion? I know even after I get on birth control I'm still going to be worried about unplanned pregnancies. what can I say? I'm a capricorn.
