Skat asks:

What could be the cause of 12-15 small, floating, white, HARD, hollow, closed, roundish pods with brown tips in my feces? It's nothing I ate - could a parasite egg be that big? What else? Thanks!


Dear Skat,

I looked at pictures of every common parasite that humans sometimes carry. I found nothing that even slightly resembled what you have described in such great detail.

I am guessing that since you said they are hollow, that the brown tip is simply a discoloration of the shell due to the rupture of the membrane when the occupant made its exit. I would say that whatever was growing in that pod is now happily living somewhere inside you.

Gather some of your eggs up in a basket and take them to a lab (or your doctor's office) for analysis. Or, put them in a dish under a heat lamp and see if they hatch. Also, keep your eye out for any strange occurrences such as space ships hovering over your house or landing in your back yard. You just never know when the mother ship might come back. This could be the beginnings of an invasion of the potty-snatchers!

Thanks for asking Motherload!

Hmmm, Mel took a parasiteplogy class. I wonder if she still has the book. I remember her showing me something like this. I will get ahold of her and post again.

On another note, I'm not one to say this, but there first posts in one day? Damn, come on poop reporters, show some poop support.

Skat, my offspring have hatched and will soon control all your systems. You will be my hapless slave. Mwaa Haa Ha!

Oh, and thanks for the marvelous evening.

I wonder if it was the inside of a food she ate, like the seed of a fruit whose flesh covered the seeds.

Whatever it is, this is a new one.

Seriously, Skat, have you changed your diet lately to include alot of oil and vinegar? Or oil and fruit juice? Its possible your bile ducts have opened up and you cut loose some immature gall stones and/or some other liver and gall bladder products.

My crazy friend, David, gave me a one hour speech on his liver cleansing regimine. And though I tried not to listen, he said he crapped out scores of little translucent nodules that looked like "fish eggs." They had some color variablity.

Go here: http://www.curezone.com/image_gallery/cleanse_flush/
and see if any of these weirdos found anything in their poop that looks like what you have. Personally, I think I would consider death before trying to wrench out some wicked looking gallstones.

Or, you can go to this site.
The patient there is posting under the heading: "Small white round things (tiny balls) in my feces??"
The doctor at first suggested giardia as a cause, but the patient says she's not drinking contaminated water. She does describe being able to break the things with her fingernail (okay, all together: Ewwwww).
Bottom line, so to speak: Skat should collect a sample and take it to a doctor for a lab analysis, if this post is for real.
Not sure what kind of doctor you go to for this, but a GP can advise you. I don't know if the procto guys are into fecal analysis, but it seems a logical side business.
Please submit photos, Skat. If nothing else, we'll understand a little better what you're talking about.
Another case of wondering why someone thinks this is the first resort in diagnosing a crap-related ailment..... I understand about not wanting to take a baggie of turd pearls into a doctor's office and pay $250 to be told you swallowed your mother's necklace, but really, if I knew I had strange objects showing up in my loaves I'd probably want a professional to evaluate it. Or a jeweler, if indeed you've turned oyster and are now pooping real pearls!

Yet another example of why it is important to play the role of Inspector Feces in daily life. There have been stray comments on PR from time to time that it is gross to stare down at your stuff.

Not so.

I hope a newbie registers under the name "Inspector Feces."

Anytime you poop things that don't look like poop and don't resemble anything you ate, you should call your doctor. Don't worry so much about their egg-like appearance, and worry more about getting the problem treated. :-)

I second that, TBW! I think its interesting how the same people who say it's gross to look at poop look at the tissue when they blow their nose. I seem to recall someone covering this point about two years ago, but it's still true.

How could aliens be mentioned without also mentioning probing? I thought the two were inseperable. Or maybe it is just assumed.

Skat. Do you have any recolection of missing time, or a mysterious aircraft following you?

It sounds like you might have been abducted by aliens from Uranus, and they impregnated you.

Watch out for cravings for Recces Pieces.

You might want to probe this problem a little more.

I'm thinking the cleansing idea wouldn't be so awful afterall. It might just flush those little critters out of yer keister. At the very least you'll be very well acquainted with your crapper!

I'm with Recto on this one: see your GP, if you're really concerned ("baggie of turd pearls" cracked me up). I wouldn't hit the panic button immediately, though. This might just be a one-time thing, and I think Daphne has the right idea. These things might just be some kind of seeds, bleached white by stomach acid.

This is the grossest thing I have ever read on this site. Even with all the I-shit-my-pants-at-Applebees/work/school and my-girlfriend-shat-on-me-while-fucking-me/in the tub, this egg problem easily surpasses them all in its pure ick factor.

Turdle, are you saying that descriptions of worms crawling/dangling from someone's anus don't exceed this in "ick factor"? Wow! I'm not sure if that means you have a strong stomach or what!
If I drop an A-bomb that's riddled with writhing pinworms, hookworms, tapeworm, nightcrawlers, what have you, believe me when I say that a clump of white buck shot in the loaf would seem a vacation in paradise by comparison. If I wiped my crev after a suspiciously soft doot and saw a bunch of squashed worm chunks on the T.P., I'd probably pivot quickly and blow a bowlful of stomach grease to go with the butt muck I just discharged.
To each his own. I'd sooner find my doctor's class ring and wristwatch in my mud than see a living, gnashing nest of recto-worms staring hungrily up at me from the shitter while the rest of the colony waves goodbye from my infested sphincter.
But that's just me.
To each his own.
Didn't mean to gross you out, of course.

That's a good point. Grapefruit, or especially those little key limes, have segmented fruit in them, each piece made of membraneous, tiny teardrops. Something like that make its encore and startle the eater.

Jaden, I think you've got the wrong website. In fact, if you've found eggs in your backyard and want them to hatch, call your local game warden and see if you have any wildlife rehabbers nearby who could assist you in the matter. Your local animal shelter will have the game warden's number and possibly even the rehabber's number as well.

Good luck.
