The other day I urinated in a cup and put it on the top shelf in my closet because my buddy was in the bathroom and I couldnt make it any longer, anyway I forgot about it and about 2 days later I remembered it and when I went to throw it away there was a brownish black sediment in it...I did this a few more times and there is always sediment sometimes more than others. There is no visible sediment when I urinate, but if I leave it for a couple days sediment forms. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Hi Silkstringz....First I would try drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day so that you have enough water through your kidneys to cleanse them out...However, if you talk to your physician tell him/her about this condition...They may want to do a culture on it...If this continues to happen then get some advice...Take care...
