Having Sex Can Help Pass Kidney Stones

(Photo: Tsester)

Need to pass a kidney stone? Slip away with your spouse for a couple hours and you can greatly improve your chances. The authors of a study recently published in the medical journal Urology conducted an experiment with 3 study groups of kidney stone patients. The first group was asked to have sexual intercourse 3-4 times a week. The second group was given the drug tamsulosin. The third group was a control group.

The sex group had an 83.9% success rate for expelling kidney stones. The second and third groups had success rates of 47.6% and 34.8% respectively.
