Depends what type: Most common cause of stone formation is lack of adequate hydration. Calcium oxalate stones are the most common and can be prevented by diet low in oxalate believev it or not low calcium diet can cause stones too a metabolic work up if you have a history of stones will help. Second most common are uric acid stones. Alkaline urine by increasing urine ph or decrease in high protein diet helps.

Highly unlikely: Kidney stones and uti's cause blood in the urine. Make sure it's vaginal bleeding with a tampon. Then follow up with a gynecologist if it is or a urologist it's not.
