How long should it take to pass a 6mm kidney stone once it feels like it's near my clitorous and tearing me? Is flomax okay for females?

How long should it take to pass a 6mm kidney stone once it feels like it's near my clitorous and tearing me? Is flomax okay for females?

Varies: How long it takes to pass will vary. Most stones that are 6mm will eventually pass. If the pain is not well managed it can be removed endosopically(by working through a cystoscope). It is fine for a female to take flomax to help relax the ureter for the stone to pass. Best wishes. ...Read more
