Bad smell in urine. Can yeast infection or uti could be the reason it smells so awful?

I went pee the other day and it smelled awful like overwhelmimg toilet water or like I don't know. Just disgusting. It's been smelling bad everytime I pee like 4 out of 5 times. And then I started my period so I thought maybe that's what it was. But now my periods over and it still smells awful. It smells like fishy now too. I don't know what to do. I think I have a yeast infection and a uti cause I have the symptoms. Do you think a yeast infection or uti could be the reason it smells so awful?

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I have gone through your query, and the first question I would have to ask is, if you get this fishy smell from your urine or vagina? Well it is difficult to say, isn't it?

The most common cause of a fishy odour is an infection of the vagina. Bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, gardnerella, etc; are some of the most common infections presenting with a fishy odour.

I would thus request you to visit a gynecologist or a sexually transmitted disease specialist who will first thoroughly examine you and then advice some laboratory investigations to support the diagnosis. Once this is done, the doctor will initiate a course of medications (eg antibiotics) which will help in treating the infection at the earliest. I would also request you to refrain from any sexual contact until you are completely cured (if you are sexually active) and also request your partner to visit a doctor if he has been experiencing any symptoms.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
