Today, my doctor confirmed that the extreme pain I've been experiencing is due to a kidney stone. My friend decided this was the time to tell me that passing a kidney stone is the male equivalent of child birth. Hello even more pain. FML

Damn, you must be in a pissy mood. Try and see if getting stoned will help alleviate your pain.

A kidney stone isn't as worst as a human head coming out of your ******.

20- A stone coming out of a men's small urethra, would most likely be the equivilant of a child coming out of a woman's ******. just ponder on that before you make assumptions.

#20 must have a penis to know how the pain would feel for a male.

#20, Do you know how small the opening of 'the penis is compared to that of a ******? Also, kidney stones are pretty much salt crystals which form with sharp edges and points.

OP- What difference does it make? Either way, you would've felt the same pain.

#20 more than likely is a sexist do to the comment stated. also not only does a woman's ****** stretch but her hip bones shift allowing her to have a baby. a urethra for both males and females do not stretch. and most kidney stones aren't smooth like the baby that comes out of a woman. I have never given birth but have been present for both deliveries of children and kidney stones and I do have to say that they both suck but once you get a kidney stone you are prone to more. last time I checked you only get pregnant as many times as you allow yourself to do so.

No they decide to bring another life into the world. Of they didn't you wouldn't be here. Yes all women should suck it up, they went through pain and the result is a ungrateful child.

ah suck t upl alot if people have kidney stones


so what are you naming the stone when you deliver it?

Haha how bout Stoney; how's that for creativity :P

Yes, giving birth might be a little more painful. But passing a kidney stone as a guy is definitely comparable. It's like trying to shove a strawberry through a McDonald's straw without altering the strawberry. It's difficult and would stretch out the inside of the penis (Sorry for not knowing the technical term) and would cause extreme pain. How would you know, anyway? You're a girl. A kidney stone doesn't hurt as badly for you.

128 - How do you know it doesn't hurt as much for a girl? Kidney stones come out of the urethra. Both sexes have it. Therefore, I'm sure it would hurt equally as much. Where do you think the kidney stones come out of with a girl? Please tell me you know that girls have two holes...

Of course I know that. But I can't pretend that I know the anatomy of a female by heart, and I wasn't sure if the urethra stretches because it's in the inner body so there are muscles around it, whereas a penis does not and has a somewhat strict size. Sorry for being ignorant, didn't mean to offend.

Some men get turned on by sticking things up their urethra. =((((

I would think for males it would hurt more considering there is more distance to cover. But from what I'm learning here, women are the masters of pain and nothing is comparable to anything they ever experience...

actually if u think about it men tend to whine more about pain than women

@130: I think he meant the stone has a shorter way to go on women.

Some women need to learn how to keep their legs closed.

mcgillswimmer 0

but, think about the size difference between the ****** and the mall urethra..and also, the ****** was built for child bearing...the urethra is not meant to push stones out..also some of those stones can be hugeeee

142- Doesn't mean it won't hurt as much. 144- Again. We have a urethra too. We also excrete kidney stones from the urethra, not the vaginal canal. Do you not listen in anatomy class?

KiddNYC1O 20

141- What pain could they possibly endure while just making a sammich?

KiddNYC1O 20

145- Isn't this about kidney stones going through the male uretha in comparison to child birth through big ******?

Possibly misinterpreted. If so, my mistake. It doesn't help that at least 50% of the people on here don't realize that women have two holes.

In all honesty, I would much rather experience child birth. You're not getting anything out of experiencing agonizing pain from passing kidney stones. Not to mention most women opt to have an Epidural (not to be confused with Epidermal :P) Yes, giving birth is painful and agonizing, but really you're choosing to have a child and it's 100% preventable. You can't bitch too much about something you caused. I'm fully prepared for the women to bash me for this comment.

ok no one knows how much pain it's goin to b for either and which is worse and then again ppl have different levels of pain tolerance

on the bright side, a kidney stone is better than giving birth

Unless you've experienced giving birth and passing a kidney stone through your penis, 154, You can't say that.

rallets 22

what about giving birth to an oversized kidney stone? :O

TaylorTotsYumm 10

Men and women both get kidney stones. Just sayin'..

iGrenade 0

cover yourself, chub. it's disgusting.

Okay, we get it. Kidney stones hurt. All of these arguments are pretty stupid.

ohthebloodygore 16

My God, you people. Yes, woman have to endure both. This is not what the FML is about. All he's saying is, it's like the equivalent of childbirth for a female. Considering males will never experience labour, this is the closest they'll get to the actual process of having a child. I personally think the pain is about the same with no epidural, but with labour, you get a child out of you therefore it makes the process a whole lot better whilst with kidney stones, it's well basically pointless pain.

FFML_314 11
ohthebloodygore 16

women* Thank you, Aria! These idiots were starting to annoy me. What the eff (excuse my half cursing) does women having to go through both have to do with this FML?! I've passed a kidney stone before, and I gave birth. The pain was basically the same. The child at the end made the pain worthwhile whilst the stone at the end made me hate the world. :P

ohthebloodygore 16

151, pretty sure most people know women have 2 holes ( three if you count the booty hole =P) idk exactly what your getting at. but I garuntee more than 50% of people know that.

it depends on the size of the stone. remember compared to female male has smaller hole. and in fact my mum told a woman can hardly feel the pain in ****** while giving birth probably the pain inside had taken up half of them.

You're right about having no choice about kidney stones and them having no purpose.

AHAHAHA finally a female that gets it!!

I though I was the only one tired of seeing her half-naked ass talking about how she loves her body. Great. Now please get dressed. Why do these gals love to take pics of themselves in their underwear and post it on the internet?!? The parents have to be overjoyed and so proud. Have some RESPECT for your body if you love it so much.

TaylorTotsYumm 10

The tubes that lead from your kidneys to your bladder are about the size of a strand of hair. Kidney stones are usually about

TaylorTotsYumm 10

...the size of a grain of sand, made up of mostly excess calcium.

Taylor, sorry but no. The urethra is usually about 4-5 mm in diameter. Kidney stones can be any size, from a grain of sand to over 1 cm. The small stones can pass without symptoms, but the larger stones can not only be excruciatingly painful, they can obstruct the urethra and cause hydronephrosis, a pathological dilation of the collecting system. This can lead to renal failure in extreme situations. Ok, class dismissed.

192 - Look at 197's comment. It speaks for itself. It also increases the count!

So what I understood out of all of this is that having a small penis is better? -_-

BigRed764 2

scientific fact men endure pain better than women. there is a popular belief that says otherwise but research shows men endure pain better.

Actually, both men and women can handle pain. Men are designed to handle short bouts of pain, and pretty much dying. Women are designed to handle long periods of time. If a man and woman were to have one limb slowly sliced off, most men (not all mind you) would die from shock right away. A woman's body adapts then will die many hours later from shock and blood loss. Men and women can handle pain, just different varieties. :3

men have more testosterone making them more able to take pain. women have estrogen that makes them very emotional. Watch a football game>>>> then watch a womens soccer, tennis, WNBA

fthku 13

You're absolutely right #20, men complain about everything. Thank god women never complain! EVER!

women don't bring the pain on themselves ... pregnancy is more often than not cause by the man being an ass hole and not wearing protection or the birth control not working .... would you rather woman just say SCREW ALL MEN WE'RE NEVER HAVING SEX AGAIN! ? And I'm talking ALL women ... how would you enjoy going gay?

during child birth babies don't just pass through the "big ****** " (as many people have posted) the baby also passes through the cervix, which ordinarily has a smaller diameter than a single piece of angel hair pasta. A load smaller than a urethra. js

284 - just so u know the cervix dilates to several cm during labor...

The cervix has to dialate to 10 cm before the woman can give birth

Clearly you don't know how small a woman's cervix is. It isn't the ****** that stretches most.

#21 actually kidney stones are extremely painful. A baby was meant to come out of a girls ******, nothing except urine is meant to come out of the urethra. So if a sharp spiky stone was making its way through your body it's going to hurt a lot more.

there Is an expensive surgery to get it removed

I think the problem is that he already is stoned ;)

It actually took my dad about 2 weeks to pass his, never saw or heard him scream and cry before with bodily pain. Apparently isn't them caused with having a shit diet?

rofflewaffle 9

It took my boyfriend a couple months of being in pain before it finally passed. It can be brought on by poor diet, but there are a number of other things that cause stones. For example, my boyfriend had a thyroid problem that was causing excess calcium to build up in his bloodstream, so much that his kidneys couldn't filter it.

Good job, sir. I applaud you.

ouch :s unlucky man, hope it goes alright :o btw another male equivalent of childbirth is the amount of pain a guy would feel if he peed out a grape :)

I shuddered just thinking about that. Though some kidney stones can be grape sized.

hahaha I actually said that outloud and then read it

Ahh, god, i'm not male and i can STILL feel the pain *shudders*

"it's gonna come out! It's a boy!". compared to "oh f*** help help!" plunk "agh, Now what?"
