I have kidney stones and I'm pretty sure I'm not passing one but my right side is in alot of pain. It tends to happen now around my period. Also starting to get sharp pains in side my vagina. No pain when going pee. Does anyone know what could be wrong with me?
In women, sometimes kidney stone pain can be "referred" to the vaginal area, much like in men it can be referred to the testicle. This means that the pain is felt in a location that is distant from where it is being generated. If you know you have stones and are having this kind of pain, it might be good for you to see a urologist. Stone pain, however, should have no reproducible relation to your period, so if that is the case each month, it may be something else like endometriosis,
