Is it possible to feel a kidney stone (large enough to be stuck in the ureters) exit the urethra in females?
Kidney stone stuck in urethra 3 days. Small 3-4mm. I've had 5-6mm stones exit no problem. Solution? When do I need to see urologist?
I saw something weird come out near my clitoral area. It looked like a kidney stone but was soft & nowhere near urethra. I had a kidney stone 1yr ago.
May be just smegma..:
What described strongly suggests the presence of so-call smegma which is the "concrete" of solidifying the shed-ed skin keratin like that in the men with tight long foreskin. In females, its appearance is more prominent if the hood of clitoris is more pronounced. Just gently flush and clean it. And note: its unique smell is normally expected.
