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.

A stone of such size poses low odd for spontaneous passage, prior stone passage will help decide if worthwhile to act or wait. If act and it is visible with x-ray, shock wave may disintegrate it; if not visible or in ureter or still in kidney, holmium laser through urehtra and ureter is the choice, Remember nothing is free... ...Read more

My father just passed a kidney stone in the hospital yesterday. Now hes discharged and feels nauseous te next is that anything to worry about ?
Not necessarily: He still may have significant residual irritation of the genitourinary tract after passing a stone which can cause pain and subsequent nausea(like when you've been hit in the stomach). I would watch for persistent nausea, the inability to tolerate eating/drinking, progressive pain, fevers, chills or soaking sweats. When in doubt, don't hesitate to contact your father's doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more

How do I prevent kidney stones. This is my second one. Thought i passed it at the hospital and was discharged but now having more pain.
Seek evaluation.: If you have recurrent stones, see a urologist for evaluation. In general: 1) increase fluid intake up to 2l of water/day. 2) follow a low salt diet, which lowers calcium in the urine. 3) reduce dietary protein, to lower calcium & oxalate in the urine. 4) do not restrict dietary calcium, but stick to the usrda. If you continue to recur, a metabolic workup by a urologist might be needed. ...Read more
