    Im the same. It is just dehydration therefore keep up the water intake. It is worth having a detox for the liver and kidneys, to help thier job of filering waste from your system. Good luck.

    Hi i'm 21. 3weeks ago i had pyelonephritis. when i went to the doctor for follow up, the test showed that there was no bacteria and that the wbc in the urine had decreased considerably but then after 2 days i went back for the urine test and this time there was presence of bacteria in the urine plus an increase in the wbc in the urine. the doc said it's probably from a vaginal yeast infection since the culture test showed that presence of bacteria was clinically insignificant and that it commonly occurs after use of antibiotics. it's been three days now since i've taken the fluconazole pill for the yeast infection and i can still see that my urine is a bit cloudy and a bit oily with pointy things in it that look like small bubbles. so now i'm getting worried. does anyone have any idea if the urine is weird and may indicate another underlying problem???

    That is normal. It is only dead skin cells that accumulate every few weeks. Cleaning the head of your penis weekly is a good regimen to practice.

    Hi, you are not alone. When I get sexually aroused with my boyfriend, and during sex, I also get a nasty smell. I never have it any other time, but I have had it for my last two boyfriends. Personally I have never found anything on the internet to explain it. I have been to a GUM clinic and been checked out and I have no sexually transmitted infections etc. I was once told by a nurse that it can be from using perfumed soaps so I don't know if maybe that might help.

    when my vagina hurts, I know that I should pass urine. My urine is a light yellow. I feel that my vagina is sore inside. I drink plenty of drinks in the day, water, diet coke and the odd capuccino. This problem has just occurred in the last 2 weeks. I do not have a burning pain when passing urine. I am 53 yrs of age.

    I am 21 years old, and since i was born i have been suffering with what i believed to be cystitis. When seeing doctors and specialist they all say i have the symptoms of Cystitis, the soreness, smelly urine, pain when going to the loo. But when doing test to my urine and looking at scans of my kidneys, doctors cannot find why i am getting these symptoms. I do not have any white blood cells in my urine or blood, i am also constipated 100% of the time but i am not sure if that has anything to do with it. Please can i get some help and advice, as i do not know what is wrong with me!

    i think you need to consult your GP. You will never know if its anything to worry about if you don't check.

    I have been told by my gp that I get recurring water infections about every 5 wks I get the symtoms tummy ache back ache urine dark with traces off blood in smelly fishy urine. I have had various precedures in hospital they come bck that it's not water infections but my gp says they r. I get given anti biotics every 5 to 6 wks these work but then the problems all come bck again. I'm getting really depressed now as it seems like this is going on and on and no one can find the cure .

    I have exactly the same problem and I feel my gp's just aren't helping me at all-I also think the antibiotics are only gonna eventually not work anymore! I've had every test u can imagine-camaras put in places they should never go but gp says there's nothing wrong! It's awful I know but at least we know we aren't the only ones out there suffering!

    I am writing this to try and help some of you girls (any maybe boys) out there. I used to suffer from really severe urine infections, they would come about almost every time I had sex or got really stressed. My urine would smell odd and become cloudy, I would have back ache, feel sick, be bloated, get diarrhoea and pass blood for about 3-6 days, but the worst things was the pain when I passed urine, sometimes I wanted to die it was so bad! And also the feeling of having to go all the time even when nothing was there to come out. sometimes I didn't get to the loo in time, so over those days I would have to call into work ill and not leave the house. Each time I went to the GP and they told me that from my sample it looked like an infection, there would be blood and puss in my urine, they always gave me antibiotics but when they sent my sample off for tests it always came back clear!!! I was advised to have a sexual health check to make sure that it wasnt anything biological or sexually transmitted and that all came back clear. They advised me to not over wash the area with perfumed soap and to ALWAYS have a wee straight after sex, it sounds simple but it made a massive difference! Another part of the cure came about by accident. Basically I have also always suffered from acne, and whilst on my pursuit for perfect skin I found a book called 'Clear Skin' by Karen Jessett, it tells you all about how taking the contraceptive pill can cause lots of other problems including urinary tract infections and actually make your skin worse too. It teaches you everything you need to know about how to use food to help reduce acne, such as not eating things like wheat or dairy and not drinking caffeine and alcohol. Since reading the book I have stopped taking the pill (I now use the rhythm method for contraception) and have changed my diet drastically. My urine infections are almost completely cured, now sometimes I get a twinge, but nothing like how it used to be. I now take cranberry tablets daily just to make sure my acidity levels are ok and I take Uva Ursi (bearberry) tablets, which can also be made into a tea (you can get both of these tablets from Holland and Barrett) I make sure that I drink at least 2 litres of water a day. I really hope that at least one thing from here helps you, I know how bad this problem can be, I used to think it was one of the worst illnesses in the world. Good luck x

    i have very smelly urine, usually its at its worst first thing in the morning i have no other symptoms.

    if u havent a UTI then maybe there is a name for what U have if the smell is fishy, it has a name which I cant remember but my doc told me that U just ignore it and it goes away, which it did, BUT please see a docter ASAP ..Usually a smelly urine means an infection..poor U

    sounds like vaginosis, some people call it BV bacterial vaginosis. most commonly it is a inbalance of the natural bacteria found in a womans vagina, from what I know the most common causes are uncleanliness (obv not why for you) or over cleanliness, douching the vagina and fragranced soaps, bubble bath etc so stop over cleaning your bits for a start, I know u fell emberresed by the smell but its not as bad as u think, u just smell it moe coz you know its there hun, the GP/family planning clinic/GUM clinic can give you tablets to rebalance the bacteria or you can try natural live yougurt on a sanitary pad at night an remove an wash in the morn an repeat for 3-4 days, the live youghurt contains natural becteria that can help rebalance things out naturaly, this method also works for thrush.

    I have recently found that my urine has become smelly. I am on the pill and thought it would have something to do with it. I do drink plenty of fluids. The colour is never unusual but its the smell i think i may have a problem. I have never had a STI, but worried that i could have. Have you any idea what it could be?

    i had a bladder op (tvt) to relieve stress incontinence about one year ago, since then i have not been able to have an orgasm, after the op the consultant said he had probably over tightened it this time, this was my third tvt.the op has worked so far as it has cured the incontinence. i mentioned this problem of not reaching orgasm twice to my consultant and on both occasions he said it was nothing that he had done and laughed. he suggested i was prescribed esterol. I'm 45 and don't believe I'm going through the change.the only other thing is when i empty my bladder it will not completely empty ,about 200mls is left in my bladder this has only been the case since my last tvt. i now have regular urine infections and my urine is very smelly. i wish i had never had the bladder op in the first place.
