If you had not been taking the BC pills for one full cycle, you would have had a risk. Taking one right after the fact does not decrease your risk: that just isn't how they work. Being on your period also doesn't eliminate risk: that isn't usually the HIGHEST risk time for most women, but it isn't the lowest, either.

I'd advise obtaining emergency contraception/the morning after pill if you wish to prevent pregnancy.

And you will also need, this whole first cycle of pills, for your partner to still use condoms. In addition, if neither of you has been practicing safer sex -- that's screenings AND latex barriers -- monogamously, for at least six months, your STI risks are still high, so we'd advise using condoms (and latex barriers for other sexual activities) for at least that long.
