What causes cloudy urine with bad odor?

Hello, today Ive noticed my pee to be cloudy with a strong and unusual Oder. I was wondering if there could be any suggestions on what that could be? I just recently finished my period and i also have a stomach problem similar to acid reflex and or gastritis.

Hi,

Cloudy urine may indicate the presence of mucus, pus, or blood. Alternatively, it can be due to sediment that forms when some of the constituents of urine, such as phosphates or urates, form tiny crystals.

If you have no symptoms, then the cloudiness may be due to the presence of normal vaginal mucus.

It would be a good idea to report what you’ve noticed to your GP, and to arrange for a sample to be sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Any blood, pus, crystals, or infection will be reported. If you have symptoms of thrush such as itching, soreness, irritation, or thick white discharge, then it would be wise to get treatment from your GP.

If your urine test is reported as normal there is no need to worry. Drinking plenty of water will reduce your chances of having problems with urine infections or cystitis in the future.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
