Possible pregnancy after ectopic

I had an ectopic pregnancy 6.5 weeks ago and still haven' t had my periods. I did a home pregnancy test this morning because I' ve been feeling so nauseous and tired. There was two lines.

Is it possible for me to be pregnant or is it rather the hCG count from the previous pregnancy (I lost the pregnancy at 7 weeks) that is still in my system?

It is rather long after the ectopic pregnancy for the test to still be positive. I would suggest that you repeat it or have a blood test.

Best wishes
