Brief Answer:
Get treated for worm infestatio first...

Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear,

Let me recapitalize your case:
- woman 21 years old
- trying to conceive
- worms found in stool
- having loose stool for a couple of weeks
- still waiting for lab results

If I was your caring doctor would advise you to take anti worm treatment first, then try to get pregnant.

You are having symptoms of worm infestation (loose stool, losing weight), which won't let you get pregnant or if so, won't carry a healthy pregnancy.

So try to get clean and then when you'd be better, start thinking about having a baby.

Wish fast recovery and good luck.

Brief Answer:
Pinworms

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,

From your description, they seem to be pinworms, which are the most common.

Usually, larvae are the only visible parts. Ova and cyst cannot be seen only under microscope.

The stool examination will identify all types of worms and protozoa or other parasites.

All the best.
