to the previous poster before me, sorry I ignored your primary question. I was constipated and diarrea for two years and then all of a sudden just passed two worms attached to my stools, no drugs. They seem to just come out at random times if you are unmedicated I guess. One thing to try though, and this is not a plug (I am a stay at home mom), but I've been using a cleanse called Paragone. I just went to a natural pharmacy and asked for the best stuff they had. Good news is I think all my worms were dead and stopping me up, but now I am passing these clumpy white fibrous clumps that I think are the dead worms. Maybe if you try it with live worms it will get them out as well. It's supposed to eliminate parasite worms and has me going like 3 times a day. Hope that helps!
