Welcome to ehealthforum,
Pregnancy even if ectopic will still give positive results with urine pregnancy test kits. If uterus has been removed, and if you have got positive result, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation to rule out ectopic pregnancy (which if ignored can result in life threatening complications). Other possibilities of false positive results include conditions like use of medications that could resemble the hormone molecule, use of infertility drugs, liver disease, liver cancers, choriocarcinoma, germ cell tumors, IgA deficiencies, gestational trophoblastic disease or neoplasm, presence of heterophile antibodies etc. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance.
Take care.
