Help about my female swordtail

So I think I have myself a pregnant swordtail. She seams to be off and rather square on the bottom. And quite sluggish, she has like white slime coming out her ....... And the other fish try to eat it ?? 🤢🤢. Have a look so what you think.Click image for larger version

Need a closer shot.Your female looks male with fin all closed?
From the picture I will shout out camallanus .. If it is you need to diagnose ASAP as it can kill your fish and is highly contagious.All those trying to eat it are likely infected also now..
Hope it is not but need a closer shot.

There's definitely try coming out of her as there's an extra tail and what looks to be eyes.

Read each link in this attachment.
You need Levamisole HCI if you agree it is camallanus.
You may be able to find it on EBAY ? or at a 'agricultural' store as a dewormer .
You only need a small amount of pure[100%] powder.
Camallanus Treatment - Use of Levamisole HCl
