In process of passing kidney stone. Feeling it in vaginal opening, uncomfortable, air bubbles coming out. Is the stone still present and will there be pain and blood involved?

Hello, I am have been in the process of passing a kidney stone for the last 2 weeks. I was diagnosed in the emergency room and referred to a urologist . I haven t been able to be seen by the urologist because there is only one office in my area so appointments are hard to come by, let alone even receive a phone call in return. The past few days I thought I possibly had passed the stone without realizing it. However, today I feel as though it is sitting at the opening of my vagina and I feel it more so when I urinate. It is more of an uncomfortable feeling rather than actual pain. Also, I am experiencing what seems to be air bubbles coming from that area. Not passing gas, just very small air bubbles . In your opinion, do you believe that the stone is still present? Are these bubbles normal/have anything to do with the passing of a kidney stone? Also, what can I expect when the stone actually passes? Will there be a great deal of pain and blood involved?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Renal stones less than the size of 10mm are flushed out easily without major complications. It occurs in 2 stages - origin till the urinary bladder and from the bladder to outside.

Pain, abdominal cramps, bloody urine and discomfort which are usual accompanying symptoms as the stones pass out is found only in the first stage. Second stage is asymptomatic and rarely one can experience flattened stream of urine or double stream urine.

From your description, your symptoms are unlikely related to renal stone passing. The discomfort in the vaginal region is probably due to localized infection. Consulting your local gynecologist will be helpful.

Drink plenty of fluids and cranberry juice can help in the meantime. Also important is to abstain from unprotected sexual intercourse until complete recovery.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good health.
