Anal Itch

I have pretty intense anal itch , especially in the morning when I just wake up.   I read up on parasites and how they lay their eggs while we sleep...which could cause the itch.   I have no rashes and no STD's.

Is there anyway I could order a 'ova and parasites' stool test over the net and get the results just for myself ?

I feel really embarrassed to bring this issue up with my doctor.

Itching could be a sign of hemorrhoids also.  The doctor can handle it, tell him.  It is nothing to be embarrassed about.
