Strong smell in urine, dark yellow, redness, had protected sex. What is wrong?

On Tuesday night I realized when I pee there was a strong smell. I didn't know we're it was from then I started to realize wednsday Thursday & Friday morning the smell will be really strong. I can't explain the smell all I know is that it smells bad and is really strong. This morning when I used the bathroom it was the same smell but the color was dark yellow and a little red into it. I had sex the week before Sunday and Monday but it was protected every time I have sex it's protected.

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Acute UTI
The strong smell and dark yellow colour is due to highly concentrated urine.

Please get your routine urine test done to confirm the high specific gravity and to rule out infection.

Take broad spectrum antibiotics after consulting your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water to keep your urine dilute. You should consume more water enough to pass at least 1500 ml of urine in 24 hours.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that the smell is related to a urinary tract infection.
Urinary tract infections are the most common cause of malodourous urine.

It may be associated with other symptoms such as burning on urination, fever and abdominal pain.

It would be best, if possible, for you to visit your doctor who would perform a urine analysis and also send urine off to the lab where they can identify the specific organism involved.
You would need a course of antibiotics if an infection is confirmed and should also consider using alot of fluids.

There are other causes of malodorous urine,they are: dehydration, vaginitis, excess coffee, some foods and diabetes.
If your doctor does not believe it is related to an infection , then he or she would check for any other causes.

I hope this helps
