Does a Mirena IUD cause foul smelling urination?

My urine has had a very foul smell for the past month or so. I recently had a Mirena IUD inserted at the end of March. I mentioned the odor to my OBGYN, and we checked for a UTI, and everything looked fine. But, the odor persists weeks later still. Could this be because of the IUD itself, the hormones associated with it, or is this Bacretial Vaginosis?

Can the Mirena IUD make yeast infections more likely and also can the IUD create the urge to urinate frequently? My urine is clear and ultrasound is normal.. It doesn t feel like bladder fullness, just more of a urethral twinge/burning. NO STD s either.
