    Jacqueline,
    Definitely ck with your gyn about the BV. I had that also and it does smell. You would also have a discharge that is almost like a grayish color.

    The only time I notice that my urine smells is when I'm taking OTC Pyridium. I don't know if it's the dye in it or what. BUT eek YUCK

      Some foods and medications can cause foul smelling urine. Insufficient fluid intake can also be a factor, especially if the urine looks fairly dark colored and murky.

        Thanks for all of your input...it really helps!! I went to both then gyn and uro and it is my urine that smells constantly (they said from IC, maybe from meds too??) and my bladder leaking a little on panties makes the smell more apparent. Guess I have to deal with it frown

            Not to be nosy, but is it a fishy type odor? If so that is a sign of a possible STD or bacterial vaginosis. Especially AFTER sex and he has ejaculated inside you, if you smell that fishy smell I'd be checking it out fast. Any type of vaginal infection can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and MUST be treated or it can lead to infertility.

            Good luck.....Sandy

              I notice that sometimes I too have a smell coming from "down there". I do not know what causes it. I do not have any type of infections.

                It sounds to me like you should consider changing urologists. This one seems uninformed. The definition of IC is that there is NO infection.

                      I have noticed urine smells really bad after eating asparagus, so I wouldn't be surprised if more foods cause this! :o

                        Hi all!
                        When my IC first kicked in, my urine also gave off a terribly foul odor. I, too, was at a loss as to what was causing it, because I wasn't eating anything different, and I had been checked repeatedly for infections with negative results. No matter how much water I drank, the smell was always the same, and I just knew something had to be horribly wrong, because it had NEVER smelled that way before. Anyway, as I got the IC under control and my symptoms eased up, the odor gradually disappeared, and I haven't had it anymore.

                        hugs to all,
                        Dee

                          That is too funny about the asparagus!!!

                          I haved asked people about the weird smell after eating asparagus,they're like "What are you talking about!".
                          Then they came back and said "Now I know what you mean about the smell".
                          Wonder what causes this??
