Usually pin worms and thread worms are main intestinal worms and parasites... Thread worms are no need of any treatment as they will die within 6 weeks... but pinworms need to be treated... if medicine is given orally it will kill only adult worms not eggs, then later eggs will become worms and cause same problems... Pinworms are parasitic worms that live in the large intestine. While you are sleeping, the female pinworms move from the anal to the vaginal area and lay eggs that result in itching.. Doctors advise pyrantel pamoate, mebendazole, and albendazole for pinworm infection. All three medicines are prescribed in two dosages. The second dose is given two weeks after the first dose. The second dose curbs the reoccurrence of these worms... These medicines are safe for expecting mothers..pinworm infection does not cause any harm to the fetus. Doctors usually avoid offering any medication and ask expecting moms to follow a strict cleanliness regime...
Glad to know that there is nothing to worry...
