Faint positive on pregnancy test. Tubal ligation done. History of ectopic pregnancy. Pregnant possible?

I went 2 my ob-gyn yesterday for a routine check-up. I gave a urine sample and my results were faintly positive for my being pregnant. I had a tubal ligation n 2008. I had an ectopic pregnancy n 2009. I had my right tube removed and my left tube has 2 rings on it. My doctor said that it doesnt have to be a tubal pregnancy, how is this possible?

History of an ectopic pregnancy after tubal ligation and doubtful test again causes concern

You should get blood tests done for hCG levels and repeated scans should be done

Take care
