I'm not sure why you think just ending your period means you don't have a risk. For plenty of women, exposure to semen at that time is within the window of their most fertile time.

If his penis was right on your vulva throughout, you have certainly had STI risks and may also have had pregnancy risks.

If you want to reduce the risks of pregnancy, you can obtain emergency contraception. Per the STI risks, you;ll want to schedule a screening about a month from now (as will he), and as may be obvious, not have that direct unprotected contact again.

You've been at the site here for three years, so I know you know by now about how to protect yourself in this regard.
