Yah. Have done it before on accident (strongid tastes kind of banana-ey). Would also be curious to do a fecal on myself (though I think I'll skip the loop), just out of curiosity.

Related: there's a parasitologist researcher at our school that, every now and then, will be looking at a fecal smear when the agenda is clear (AKA everything else is looked at). If asked something like 'oh what sample is that? We didn't get anything in' he'll simply reply 'primate' and leave it at that.

Oh GOD. You people are horrible. I have to wait until THURSDAY before I can get to the store!

Oh lord. I hope CVS has it. UGH. Does the human stuff get rid of hook, whip and tape worms too?

You guys mean it is not routine to do it in the States? I deworm all of us, dogs and humans, every 3 months.

I'm not very easy to gross out, but this thread has achieved that. Ew.

Seriously! I started feeling pretty nasty after reading this thread. Blech.

I feel like I need to deworm myself now but I don't really want to deal with any side effects from the drug.

I'm a fairly obsessive hand washer and no licking of my face (or hands) is allowed, so I'm not too worried. Still grossed out though.

I'd skip the worming even if I wasn't incubating the fetus, but I'll be waiting to hear everyone else's results

nope. as i've never had anything i'd consider symptoms, i don't worry about it. even if i do have some sort of worms, i'm not worried about it. gives my immune system something to do.

did you know that worms are a treatment in some really resistant cases of crohn's disease and IBD? and that people in countries where it's common to have parasitic infections don't get those diseases? it's purely a development of being parasite free.

can't win, no matter what you do

lol, I always find it funny when I meet people that havn't dewormed themselves. I thought everyone did, my sister and I grew up in dogs faces/beds and ended up being regularily wormed.
I havn't in years though.

No, I have never been dewormed, but I'm always barefoot, and Orson had worms a few years ago so of course I was the one cleaning up after him!

*Puts wormer on the list of things to buy*
