Confirm diagnosis...: ...then we can discuss expected outcomes depending upon what treatment is recommended, once the infectious burden you have (how many pinworms have to be eradicated) is identified, & the risks of re-exposure elucidated. Please also avoid behavior that permits infection by you of others. I do not recommend you taking ANY chances (pin worms or otherwise) regarding the health of your unborn child!
