In brief: Normally 2 days
The time to pass a stone is really the same for men and women.
Most stones pass in the forst 48 hours. The chance of it passing after a week is around 50%.

In brief: Variable
It is quite variable and to a large degree depends on which portion of the kidney the stone is lodged in.
Some stay unchanged for years while others pass out readily.
