The most common way for parasites to enter the gastrointestinal tract is by drinking natural water from a stream, river or lake, eating food that has come into contact with ova or ingesting water from contaminated swimming pools or hot tubs.
Our ova, cysts and parasites (OCP) test looks for these parasites and their ova by examining a simple stool sample.
This test is for anyone looking to find out whether their gastrointestinal tract has been infected by a parasite.
