Here is...: Bladder ultrasound scanner is good for daily use to check if bladder empties well after voiding. Incomplete emptying suggestes significant bladder weakness resulting from muscle or nerve damage. Cystoscopy is usually not necessary although at times useful to confirm the bladder changes from its outlet blockage commonly by prostate enlargement or... So, how far will the evaluation go? Ask urologist.

See your doctor!: I wouldn't worry - i would see my doctor! worry is not going to help. Seeing your doctor and having further testing will help show what, if anything, is wrong. And, yes, it could be serious! see your doctor!

Stinky pee=need2see: We all know poop can be stinky, but the pee should not be. The main concern is urinary tract infection (uti), which can lead to severe kidney infection if untreated. It is not easy to diagnose a UTI by sight or smell, so a properly obtained urine culture is important. Sometimes we find no infection, just a temporary bad smell, but this is one of those infections we would not want to miss!

A 19-year-old female asked:

What can cause a foul odor in urine, thats not an std?

Bladder infection: Foul-smelling urine can come from a bladder infection or even from certain foods that we eat. Stds do not usually effect the bladder and i wouldn't think they are responsible for the foul-smelling urine. More than likely it is from a bladder infection. Vaginal infections can sometimes have an odor as well and may be difficult to distinguish from odor caused by urine.
