Brief Answer:
Do a stool exam!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The best way to tell is by conducting a stool exam. Send a sample of your stool to the laboratory for testing and they will return with results on whether you are infested or not. Any laboratory should be able to do this test. It is commonly referred as stool KOAP test.

I hope this guides and helps. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
