How long does it take for a tonsil stone to come out?

I got my very first tonsil stone o n friday, but i want it out, i tried gargiling salt water, and im to scared to stick something down my throat to pick it out, its kind of on the edge, so, part of it is behind this outer flappish looking thing, how long does it take to come out natturally do you think??

no one really knows.
it could come out in a day or two or in a week or two or in a month or two or it may not just naturally come out at all.
if it stays in there and goes into your tonsil fully it may become embedded in there.

you should stick your finger in there and try to get it out that way. (thats the only way i could ever get them out).

i just had my tonsils out due to tonsil stones 16 days ago. my ENT said that when he cut into my tonsils tons of stones started coming out (sorry i know gross). so that goes to show that many of my tonsil stones that i couldn’t get out with my finger didn’t naturally come out on their own at all. they just stayed in there.

if it doesn’t go away and its really driving you nuts then go see an ENT.

    i know your probably not supposed to, but i usually take it out myself, though im sure if you keep rinsing your moth it will become unlodged on its own. I just usually cant take the smell/taste to wait

    I have had problems with this for over 3 years and every I find Information says "get the tonsils out".. Well you don’t need to! I was at my doctor 4 months ago for an acne problem and he prescribed me DOXYCYCLINE it is a bacterial antibiotic to help my skin. I take two a day and have no more acne and also my tonsil stones are GONE!!

    Its incredible, I’m not afraid to kiss my boyfriend anymore. I don’t always need gum. Its amazing not having this problem anymore.

    Hope I helped :)
