My urine smells stronger, what does that mean?

Many possibilities: Urine smelling stronger could be the product of food or drink (asparagus for example lead to increased urine odor), hydration, or urine infection. If this persists you will need to see your doctor to have a urinalysis and urine culture and examination.

Different reasons: Certain foods (asparagus -too many-) or bacterial infections may produce bad smell in urine. A urinalysis may help clarify this.
