Hi pnkwyte,

There really is no way of us knowing whether the precum contained sperm of not, so there is a chance that if it was on your vagina then then it may have contained sperm. Women don't typically ovulate during their periods but stranger things have happened. And if you took your pill within 48 hours then you should be protected. Try not to stress this out but use a condom next time so that the cum/precum factor is not an issue. 

Good luck,

Hi Rosa,

The last time he ejaculated was the day before the day we did. Will that reduce the risk of precum containing sperms?
Thank you.
