Yea ive taken pics, taken the critters with me in a bag, all kinds of shit. One time a nurae asked me if I took a crap in the woods bc I had what looked like sticks and leaf debris in my sample. I said no....thoae "sticks" are parasite skin rolled up. The "leafs" are fluke skins that haven't rolled up on themselves. That's how ignorant they are.
They will ask for ONE stool test to determine if you have a parasite. Thing is....not every stool has eggs. The eggs come in a cycle. You can go a month or two with no eggs present. When they do ahow up it may only be one egg in a huge crap, other times it will be FULL.
MY NEW TACTIC: TAKE eggs to the doc. I'll update on that to let evweyone know what happened.
