I have Kidney stones about 4mm or so and am supposed to be straining for them. Now when I pee into a cup will I be able to see them in the urine, then strain for it r do I need to strain all of the urine through the paper stuff I have everytime?

I'm not an expert, but I think you would probably be able to see the 4mm stone if you passed it (in the strainer). I had an 8mm one, and not only did I feel it come out, but it was very clearly visible. 4mm is not that much smaller. Depends on what your doctor told you though. If you have more than one and he/she wants to collect all of them, you should keep doing it until you've caught them all!
