For the last week or so my urine has started smelling very stong and unusual. Like, well, dog pee. I drink plenty of water most days and i'm not experiencing any pain, urgency or frequency. I'm thinking about going to the Dr. For a uti test, but, like many americans, I am extremely underinsured and afraid I can't afford it right now, so it would be great if someone knew something else it could be, or something I can try. Btw, I can't think if anything different that i've been eating and it's not just in the morning, it's all day. Also, the color has not changed, just the smell.

Urine Smells Different
I also have noticed a different odor about my urine and I describe it as sour; or like vomit. This smell is not always present but when it is, it is very offensive. I do take a hormone replacement and I am wondering if it could be this or one of my other medications. I have tried to read side effects on my meds but so far I have found nothing, and I have taken the same meds for years. If this continues I plan to go to the doctor......I would be extremely sorry if my body is trying to tell me something and I ignore it. I am a colon cancer survivor...Only because I reacted to early warning signs and went to the doctor. Please reply if you have learned anything. I will do the same.
