I have strong chemical smelling urine right before I get a systemic yeast infection. I was told that usually only persons with aids will get systemic yeast infections. I don't have aids. I came about my self diagnosis by chance from a tip from a friend and some oral yeast medicine prescribed to my infant daughter. I now take caprylic acid and all symptoms (that were also diagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome) have disappeared. I still have, and probably always will have problems with yeast. Cutting out sugar helps mostly. I was wondering if any one else has noticed this connection - yeast and smelly urine.

I have the same problem. I had a real bad bladder infection, with no pain, a couple months back and had blood in my urine, which made it smell like that. Since then I was on an antibiotic and rechecked, it was gone. Now it is back and I am going to make an appointment with the doctor. But the reason I am replying to your post is because I have an IUD wich causes me not to have periods. Now I am wondering if it has something to do with that also. I drink a lot of water, exercise daily, eat right, low sodium diet, no sugar.

I have an IUD as well and have started to wonder the same thing. I have had the IUD for about two years and since I've noticed the smell my cycle has been very light or not there and I'm wondering if the smell is linked to me not having a cycle. I've had my round of antibotics and the smell went away but when it seemed like I was gonna have a period the smell came back but no period.

When I started having unusual smelling urine, I started to drink raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar with my drinking water. I drank lots of it for several days. I believe this helped to clean my kidneys. The smell went away and it has not returned. I remember how worried I was that something serious was wrong with my kidneys. All tests that the doctor did also showed nothing. I recommend that you try this. It won't hurt. I got used to the taste. Just pour a little of the apple cider vinegar into a glass of water. Drink a lot of it during the day. I would love to know if it helps you too. Please let me know.

Asparagus
I noticed about 2 weeks ago that my pee STANK. I couldn't believe it. I DIDN'T believe it. I thought there were some chemicals in the toilet or something. Then it happened a few more times, and finally it happened in the shower so I know my toilet theory is wrecked.

So I've been trying to think of foods I've eaten lately that I'm not used to eating. Asparagus is one, and these hot peppers my neighbor gave me are another. The peppers are from India and they don't really smell like anything, so I'm leaning toward asparagus.

Thought I'd throw that out there since the one person mentioned asparagus & broccoli.

Good luck!

smelly urine
I'm sorry for everyone, but I feel so much better that I am not the only one. About a week ago my urine began smelling really foul. First it was like popcorn, now it is like bacon. Strong bacon.....

I had a sinus infection and was on three different rounds of antibiotic....nothing worked. Now I have bacon pee.

I have tried drinking lots of water, even thinking it was a yeast infection caused by the antibiotics, and tried the yogurts and the vaginal creams. Nothing has helped.

help!

not sure what's going on
For the past month my urine has been smelling really bad. Im not sure what it is. It smells like for example lets say someone unrinates in a toilet and that urnine just sits there for a couple of days. The smell gets worse. That's how mines smells. I would much rather it be smelling like popcorn. This smell is very very offensive, even to me. I have also noticed a weired feeling in my volva like i'm coming on with a yeast infection but it's not happening. I have also noticed that the color of my urine has got very dark. I am very worried because this has never happend to me before and im ashamed to mention it to anyone. If anyone knows what may be the possibililty for this please let me know, I am desperate for an answer.

Urine Odor
Do you have an IUD. Your systoms sound the same as mine and I'm starting to wonder if my IUD is the connection. I have had it for two years and I'm not seeing much a period so I'm wondering if my body is trying to tell me something.

Welcome to the site..Smile

I would highly recommend going to a doctor to get a urine test. You can have a urinary tract infection starting or possibly an infection with your kidneys.
Are you having pain in the flank area?
Are you drinking enough fluids? Do you have pain with increased fluid intake?

Have a test done!
If you have odd smelling urine, you should be sure to get a test done for any unpleasant bacteria. Bacteria like e-coli have a fairly nasty smell and that's a very common cause of UTIs/Cystitis (about 95% of them actually). Make sure that they do a proper culture for it, which should take about 5 days to do it properly, to make sure that nothing is missed out. If you want to do yourself a favour, try getting hold of some Waterfall D-Mannose as it's a very good supplement for maintaining a healthy bladder and it'll remove all the nasty bacteria too. But first and foremost, have a test done. Also if you do find that it is cystitis, DO NOT drink cranberry juice (unless it is the Proteus bacteria, in which case DO) since almost all the bacteria will thrive in the acidic environment. Lemon juice can help however, since it has an alkalising effect on the urine once metabolised (again unless it's the Proteus bacteria which thrives in the alkali).

I really hope that this helps you,
Chiyaki

Odd Urine Smell
I too have had an odd urine smell. I thought that the smell was consistent with having a hysterectomy, but possibly not. I didn't notice a 'popcorn' smell, but just an odd 'pissy' odor. When I started drinking whey protein shakes, the odor went away. I stopped the shakes and haven't noticed the smell again lately.

Really rude smelling pee
My urine stinks way worse than any food or food group combined. One guy kind of flippantly in my opinion offered a cure if we drank 5 pints of water, didn't smoke, do drugs or drink and ate healthy. Well, I already drink that much water and more, and don't do drugs, smoke or drink and eat healthy and my pee STILL STINKS! It doesn't matter what time of day. Yes, it is obviously stronger first thing in the morning as expected but my daughter has learned not to use my bathroom. She can smell the pee long after I am finished. When I first began noticing it, I had been on new medication so I thought wow, I can't wait to finish this.... But that was 5 months ago, and though I know alot of meds can take a long time to totally metabolize out of the body, this is ranking ridiculous. I do eat broccoli but rarely and broccoli is more of a gas producer than stinky pee maker. I used to eat much more broccoli and never had this problem. My doctor visits, thus far have not been enlightening.

It seems to be mainly a female problem or maybe we are the only ones online looking for answers.

I wish some great, knowledgeable urologist would sign on to this site and respond...OHHHHHHHH Yes! I have the answers you and your families are seeking.... Do this and viola!...regular pee!

Anyone else notice a smelly urine after taking birth control?
I have been having strange smelling urine for the past couple of months now, it started after i had a baldder infection.
I also changed birth control pill the just as i was getting over my baldder infection.
A couple of days later i noticed a onion/garlic kind of smell it totally freaked me out, and didnt know what on earth was going on with my urine. I started to drink ALOT of water and thought maybe it would get rid of the strange smell, but no success. It doesnt always smell feral just mainly in the morning and as i usually tale my pill before bed i was thinking it could be that but i really have no idea. I should go get a doctor to check me over.

When urine is sitting in the bladder all night it can develop an odor. It wouldn't hurt to consult with your doctor.

Smelly urine!
Hello once Again I am someone who has this problem! But let me tell those people that... I Do not do any drugs nor prescriptions I don't take birth control either no Vitamins nothing! I don't drink coffee I'm not on a low-no-carb diet! I hate asparagus and brocolli uugghhh I drink a lot of H20 and I excercise frequently....hmmm I LOVE CHICKEN THOUGH?
Any who I have not found a connection or anything that resembles my smell, but it is a sour very highly potent smell. like some one had mentioned before my boy friend as well could notice the smell. I have had a kidney infection before like when I was 17 and it was painful in the back of my ribs where my kidneys are no where near my vagina! we need nurse someone specialized I guess to let us know whats Rolling Eyes up?

Urine smells like bacon...
I too have noticed that in the past 4 months, all of a sudden my urine has this strong, bacon-like odour to it. It makes me sick and self conscious...particularly at work where we have a large women's bathroom.

I've been researching the internet for information and have seen the doctor. I do not have a bladder infection, uterine infection or a urinary tract infection. I'm also not menopausal, although my sister, who is, also has smelly urine. I'm also not on any medication, nor do I take any supplements whatsoever, in order to eliminate any possible external item that may be affecting me this way.

So far, however, I have found that if I do consume more fruits like watermelon, that for some reason I don't have that fried bacon smell eminating from my pee. I've never been one to drink a lot of liquids, save for coffee, but then my urine would take on a coffee scent. But even that, lately, wasn't the case.

I stumbled upon the melon remedy by accident. So far, it's working...and it's not like you have to eat a lot of it either. I just have about a cup full of bite size chunks of watermelon...or any other melon but I find watermelon works best so far...and that funky pee isn't there.

I intend to inquire my doctor for other tests, but as I mentioned, so far, eating watermelon seems to be taking care of my problem. Have no idea why.

Watermelon is a kidney cleanser. You can read about it in Curezone . com . At the top bar, click on "Cleansing" and then click on "Kidney cleanse."

Urine smelling like bacon
WOW. It's good to know I'm not crazy. I have the bacon smell too when I pee along with it being cloudy (and I don't drink a bunch of milk). I am not over weight. I weigh 115lbs. I am 22 years old. I have issues sometimes where I get a little shaky, hot, and feel like I'm going to faint. My doc has said that I have hypoglycemia. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. I am starting to wonder if I have a kidney disorder. Last year I was getting frequent UTIs along with the bacon smell so my doc took a urine sample and told me I had a lot of protein in my urine. I got an ultrasound and I didn't have any kidney stones. The UTIs stopped and nothing was done after that. About a month ago I started getting the bacon smell again but no signs of a UTI. Anybody have any insight?

onion or stinky smell
I have noticed that I have a strong onion smell to my urine the day after eating onions for dinner. I also have the weird bacon smelling urine. This has been happening off and on for close to a year now...I have been drinking mostly water with one to two sodas a week (usually non-caffeinated). I was looking online for some type of remedy and was surprised to find so many other women with the same problem. I find it really embarassing when I use the restroom at work and my husband has commented on the smell on several occasions...I read all the previous posts and am going to try the daily watermelon as posted previously. I will post back to let everyone know how that works.
