Anyone who has suffered from painful kidney stones will do everything they can to never suffer from their pain again.

But instead of drinking water to naturally expel them, experts believe there is another way to eliminate them from the body.

Having sex or masturbating three times a week also works, researchers claim.

About 10% of British and Americans get a kidney stone every year.  The process of passing one can be incredibly painful and grueling and sometimes requires surgery

WHAT ARE KIDNEY STONES?

Kidney stones are hard lumps that form from a buildup of waste products in the blood.

They are most commonly found in the kidney or ureter — the tube that connects the kidneys to your bladder.

They can be extremely painful and can lead to kidney infections or the kidneys not working properly if left untreated.

One-tenth of Britons and Americans suffer from kidney stones, with 30- to 60-year-olds being the most vulnerable.

The person is more likely to not drink enough, to take certain medications, or to have an underlying condition.

Symptoms include pain in the side of the abdomen, severe pain that comes and goes, and nausea or vomiting.

Those who are in severe pain, have a high temperature or have blood in their urine should contact their GP or NHS 111 immediately.

Once a kidney stone has formed, the body tries to pass it through the urine.

Most are small enough to do that and can be managed at home.

However, larger stones may need to be broken with surgery.

Up to half of all patients develop kidney stones again within five years.

One-tenth of Britons and Americans suffer from kidney stones, with those over 30 being the most vulnerable as the risk increases with age.

If they grow too big, they can become extremely painful and usually require surgery to remove them.

The procedure uses a laser to break the stone into small pieces so it can pass naturally, or tools to manually remove the stone.

Meanwhile, those who suffer from small stones are encouraged to drink plenty of fluids and take medications called alpha-blockers, which help stones relax muscles in the urinary tract.

But write in The Journal of Sexual MedicineDoctors in Indonesia noted that contraction and relaxation of the bladder neck — which happens during orgasm and ejaculation — can also help pass kidney stones.

This is because as the muscles relax, urine is encouraged to pass through the urethra along with kidney stones.

Urologists from Universitas Airlangga in Surabaya reviewed five studies on the topic.

They included 406 participants who were told to have sex or masturbate three or four times a week or to abstain from both activities.

dr. Yudhistira Pradnyan Kloping and his team examined how sexual acts affected the number of kidney stones expelled in each group and how long it lasted.

The results show that the expulsion rate was 5.7 times higher in the sexual activity group.

And stones were also expected to pass out faster in those who had sex or masturbated.

Meanwhile, the number of people requiring pain relief because of kidney stones was 62 percent lower in the sexual activity group.

And the percentage that needed laser treatment to break the stone was one-fifth lower.

The researchers conclude: ‘Having intercourse or masturbation three to four times a week is beneficial for promoting spontaneous expulsion of distal ureteral stones.’

The kidneys are responsible for removing waste products from the blood by filtering about 150 liters of it per day. Clean blood is returned to the body, while waste products are removed through the urine.

However, people who don’t drink enough, take certain medications, or have an underlying condition are at risk of developing hard clumps of waste products.

Symptoms include pain in the side of the abdomen, severe pain that comes and goes, and nausea or vomiting.

Once a kidney stone has formed, it usually moves to the bladder on its own within a few weeks, allowing the body to pass it through the urine.

People can reduce the risk of kidney stones by drinking plenty of water and making sure the urine is pale in color – a signal that they are well hydrated.
