Is this a tapeworm proglottid? *pic*

Posted , 3 users are following.

hello everyone, so today while I was on the toilet i saw something strange in my stool and decided to pick it out with a stick. Its brown a rubber like, while folding it it folded back exactly like rubber. Its about a 2cm long and maybe 2mm thick. Visited my doctor after it, says she doesnt know what it is and redirected me for a stool sample. Ill be going to give the sample tommorow but am so afraid of the result and would like yours oppinion what it could be.

    Hi sound like it could be mucus, yeast or parasite but don't be surprised if it comes back showing nothing. I had 2 stool test done by my Dr and both time it showed nothing. Im now seeing an intergrative Dr and he's doing a comprehensive gut test for 3 days, it's more in depth.
