I'm not really sure where to post this, but today when I went to the bathroom I passed a white worm in my stool. I have contacted my doctor and they think it may be a pinworm, but I didn't see them to check my stool. I have looked up this parasite, but I don't think that is what I have as I have no itching and this was the only worm that I saw. Please, I am really concerned about this. Please if anyone might know what it is I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!!!!
Pinworms are very small and white, and usually there are many of them. But if this just started it may that they will increase. Telling us the size would help a lot. But you did pass it which is good, and there may not be any more.
