ok to stop taking birth control following emergency contraception?

this is a follow up to this post because only one person responded to me (thank you) and I still desperately need help (this journal is my only hope really...)

so, I took my regular birth control as plan b 11 and a half hours after the condom broke. I took 4 pills then another 4 pills 12 hours later. As I wrote in the other post, I had been on the pill for 8 days before this happened, but I skipped one pill so I was one pill behind and I forgot to take a pill the night this happened.

I really, really, cannot cope with waiting or taking a pregnancy test. If I'm pregnant, I'm dead. It costs something like almost a thousand dollars to get an abortion in this country. I have no money and no one to help me.

my last period was November 15th.

My question is- should I keep taking my regular birth control, or stop it to induce a withdrawal bleed? (I am not likely to be having any more sex in the foreseeable future) Will that empty my whole uterus and get rid of whatever might be happening in there? or is it possible to have a withdrawal bleed and still be pregnant at the end of it? I really need to see some blood right now to prove to myself I'm not pregnant. I'm sorry if I sound insane but I am completely freaking out. I'm hoping the emergency birth control worked because I feel depressed, weepy and crampy. But I need to know for sure.

My main worry is... If I stop taking my regular birth control, am I going to start ovulating and maybe become pregnant after the fact from sperm hanging around inside me?
