Three weeks ago there was an incident where doers got on my pants.. Even though it can't travel through clothes.i am on birth control and I had my period a week and a half ago and it was longer than normal (I think because I took plan b a month before). Although my period ended for a day then a day after I had brown discharge. Then a week after that I took a pregnancy test in the middle of the night. I went to bed at 9:45 pm and woke up and took the test at 3:45am. My urine was really light yellow. Does that matter and would it count as a first morning urine?

Did you read the instructions that came with this test and stick to them? If so, you can trust the result.

If you're not sure about that, you can always get a second test to double-check.

But it also sounds like you haven't had a risk to begin with.

Thanks. How common is it that someone would get their period on the pill and actually be pregnant?

People who are pregnant won't get a period (or a withdrawal bleed, if they're on the pill) at all. So not only is it not common, it's not possible.
