What causes cloudy urine with strong urine odor?

default
Posted on Tue, 6 Jun 2017
Question: I am currently sexually active with my boyfriend and I partake in some drinking. Today around 3pm I went to the restroom and noticed my urine was foggy with a strong smell, and I had spotted a little bit of blood. My period is not due for at least a week. Recently I went to the restroom again and my urine was still foggy but did not have a strong smell and I was not spotting. I also wasn't bleeding prior using the restroom or after. Could this be a sign of drinking a different type of alcohol? I also experienced a stressful event last night as well. Could this be because of stress? Or even possibly pregnancy?

Brief Answer:
Urine infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
It looks like you are suffering from a urinary tract infection which is quite common considering your age.

I would advice you to do the following

1. Seek medical attention as soon as possible for a urine routine and culture along with complete blood count and an ultrasound scan of the renal system including Prostate.
2. You will have to be put on antibiotics. Most commonly a Fluroquinolone like Tab Levofloxacin for 14 days followed by a repeat urine routine.
3. If the urine grows an organism the antibiotic can be changed to what that organism is sensitive to.
4. Drink plenty of water
5. Use protection during intercourse and your partner should undergo a urine routine as well.
it is not related to pregnancy or alcohol drinking.

Wishing you good health.
