If you have parasite do they always move in your stool? If they don't move is I just u digested food?
I noticed something that looked like small strings in my stool today. This is the first time I've seen them. Parasites?
I have multiple ova and parasite tests done and they all came back negative. My stool is covered in strings. What could be the cause.
Food fibers: If you do not have symptoms, do not obsess about the "strings". For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I would suggest if this has been going on for more than a few days to alert your parents and go to see your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
