i am fairly sure it is tapeworm. it looks just like the segments of tapeworm i see on the internet.
i saw a doctor today and he said he thinks it is pinworm although he didn't examine the segments, just went based on what i said. he asked if they were very small and i said kind of.
i should have been more specific. but i brought a stool sample with me and they sent it to the lab.
do tapeworm segments in poop look like pumpkin seeds/beans?
