Hi, Healthy 25yr old female and have just noticed a straw like substance in my stool. They can seem to be quite tough and almost fibrous I can only described it as a straw like consistency. Can anyone shed any light on what this is as Im quite worried?

Hello,
These straw like substances could possibly be ova of worms. Other possibility is Candida in stools. These  could be fungal balls from Candida infection. It is important to get a complete clinical examination done. Test like stool test would confirm/exclude the possibility of above mentioned causes. I hope it helps.
Best luck and regards!
