    From what I've read, bed bugs don't lay eggs on/inside your body. But I've found some very unfortunate evidence to the contrary. Warning: TMI AND GROSS IMAGE.

    I've been dealing with a bed bug infestation for about six weeks now. A very light, early one, the exterminator said--he said he wouldn't even call it an infestation. Only two live bugs were ever found, and one dead, after two treatments. I haven't seen any bugs since the dead one, about a month ago, I think. Tonight, I was going to the bathroom and when I wiped and checked the TP to see if I needed to wipe again, I saw something weird on the toilet paper. It kind of looked like a bedbug egg to me, shape-wise, although I'd only seen pictures, previously. I investigated it and transferred the thing onto a clean piece of toilet paper. Still looked like a BB egg, with the little hole on top and everything--but bigger than I thought they'd be, and with darkened edges. I squeezed it, and it popped. When I took the popped substance out, it looked like this.

    Pics (no poop or anything but potentially gross)

    So I guess my question is did a BED BUG FREAKING LAY AN EGG INSIDE MY BUM?

    This happened around 11 PM tonight. I took a shower this morning and washed down there, you know, as you do. I went to the bathroom several times today but it was just urine (sorry for the details here) so I wasn't checking the TP. The underwear I was wearing was brand new. The skirt I was wearing was not, nor was it fresh from the laundry, but when I take off my clothes everyday I put them in large ziploc bags to keep them safe. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? WHAT DO I DO?

    That doesnt look like a BB egg to me, it is um
    Quite large for an egg, almost the size of an adult. No idea what it is though

    I thought it seemed too big too! I mean honestly at this point I'm hoping I just have some kind of freaking parasite

    Or I've been looking into it more and could just be an undigested/unsprouted seed of some kind.

    I apologize if I overreacted and made anyone look at my butt products for no reason But I would love to get a PCO to weigh in just in case!

    I'm not a PCO, but if I would you, I would monitor things and if your situation continues maybe contact a doctor. If they are eggs and not simply some kind of food item, then they are much, much more likely to be a parasite (tapeworms?) than bed bugs. Your doctor would know better how to advise you.
