in the average 28 day cycle the egg is produced around day 14. Sperms can live 48 hours in the vagina or the uterus so the most fertile time is day 12 to day 16. The least likely time to conceive is from day one to day seven. If your cycle is different from 28 days on average you have to adjust the calculations. The important thing to remember is that the egg is produced about 14 days BEFORE the next period starts - so there's always a bit of guess work involved.
If you took the first pill 45 min after it happened and the second exactly 12 hours after the first, the odds are very good that you will have avoided conception. Counting day one of menses (bleeding) as the first day of your cycle your most fertile days are, (very broadly, based on short and long cycles) day 10-18.

that shortly after your cycle, you shouldnt worry too much. its unlikely that you have ovulated 2 days after your cycle ended. and since you took the pill within the amount of time needed... you shouldnt have much to worry about. take a prego test in about 3 weeks just ot make sure.. but really. i belive the timing, and pill will have you covered.
Its all good its highly unlikely you weren't ovulating, but you were safe just in case!! and 45 mins after is very soon after- some time it can work up to 3 days after..but the chances are obviously lowered
Don't sacrifice your future for a momentary pleasure
