Partly: If the stone are less than 0.5 cm drinking more water may help expel the stones. Drinking enough water so that your urine is mostly colorless will also reduce the risk of formation for new stones. However, you should see your doctor to ascertain if intervention is need to remove the stones already there. Get HPV vaccine. Wish you good health!
