In brief: Pregnancy?

Many people are confused about what a partial hysterectomy means.
To a physician a hysterectomy means removal of the uterus. To non-physicians this could mean removal of an ovary or part of the uterus. If you have had removal of the uterus, why would you even perform a pregnancy test? I would start with determining what type of surgery you had and see a physician as soon as possible.

In brief: Weird

If you have no uterus - weird.
If you only have a cervix, it's still unlikely to get pregnant. I'm not sure what your definition of partial hysterectomy is but if your surgery involved partial removal of your uterus, see your OB asap! i'd recommend an HCG level and ultrasound if elevated. Tumors & false tests are possible ps - i'd love to hear what they find, take care.
