The eggs enter into human stomach through faeco-oral routes. A matured female roundworm can lay more than 200 thousands of eggs per day in human stomach. Those eggs come outside through stool. They enter into our body through dirty water, food and hand. After crossing various stages in its lifecycle, a matured round  worm starts to suffer us.
