red worm in urine
Hi, I am 15 weeks pregnant.  I got the shock of my life when I found a red live worm when I passed urine. I have posted  in many forums and all people say is that they have heard of worm in stool and not urine. I called my doctor and she says to have a urine test tomorrow. Wanted
assurance from people that my baby is alright. And if u have any information that will be really help full.
Also for past days I am having loose stools.
Thank u very much

Hello,
It can be due to a blood clot due to old blood which gives a black color or it can be due to schistosomiasis. Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease caused by several species of fluke of the genus Schistosoma. I suggest you to consult a urologist and get a complete urine examination done to confirm the diagnosis.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
