Kidney Stones and Periods

Has anyone who has suffered from kidney stones/kidney infections had any trouble with their periods?  I had a long, painful period for three weeks and then the following month my period only lasted for two days but I still had a lot of pain - I was told that I could possibly have kidney stones as I had a urine infection and the pain could be linked to this.

Hi,

Are there other symptoms present?  A kidney stone is a solid mass made up of tiny crystals which may present as abdominal pain, blood in the urine, chills,  excess urination at night, fever, flank pain or back pain, painful urination or urinary frequency/urgency. Abdominal CT scan, xrays or ultrasound of the kidneys will confirm the diagnosis of kidney stones.

Menstruation problems are hormone and stress related. It would be best to have this evaluated further by your doctor for proper management. Pregnancy test would also help rule out pregnancy. Drink plenty of fluids and over-the-counter pain medications may also help.  Take care and regards.
