You should not attempt to dislodge a kidney stone stuck in your urethra yourself. The urethra is a very sensitive tube and any attempt to manipulate it could cause serious damage.

Kidney stones typically get lodged in the ureters, the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, not the urethra which carries urine out of the body.

If you suspect you have a kidney stone, the best course of action is to seek medical attention immediately. Here are some signs that you might have a kidney stone:

  • Severe pain in your lower abdomen or groin
  • Pain or burning sensation when urinating
  • Blood in your urine
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty urinating or urinating frequently in small amounts

A doctor can diagnose a kidney stone with a variety of tests, including a urinalysis, blood test, and imaging test like a CT scan or ultrasound. Once they have diagnosed the stone, they can recommend the best course of treatment. Treatment for kidney stones will depend on the size and location of the stone. Here are some common treatments:

  • Pain medication
  • Drinking plenty of fluids to help pass the stone
  • Medications to help relax the ureter and allow the stone to pass
  • Lithotripsy: A procedure that uses shock waves to break the stone into smaller pieces that can be passed more easily
  • Ureteroscopy: A procedure that uses a thin scope to insert a laser or basket to remove the stone
