I had sex with a guy I barely knew

I had sex with a guy I barely knew, and I regret it so much! I took a plan b pill, but I'm nervous that I might have been ovulating when we had sex. I've missed my period and have been having symptoms of pregnancy.
I'm too scared to take a test a see the results, as I am afraid to be pregnant. My parents would be beyond disappointed in me, they have high expectations for me, this would be a shock to them. I told the guy I had sex with and he is being very kind and supportive for me. I have told one close friend that I might be pregnant and she is also very supportive.
My parents are loving Christians and would support me with love and care, but I can't take disappointing them. I don't know what to do about this, and I wish I could talk to a girl who was going through a similar scenario, it would make me feel less alone. Thanks for reading.

Editor's Comment

If you have taken emergency contraception, it can delay your period from coming but the only way to be sure is to take a pregnancy test if your period still has not come. Maybe you could ask your close friend if she would be with you while you do the test so that you are not alone during this time. for support around unprotected sex.
