Cystitis: This is fairly common and if you treat it early and successfully - is nothing to worry about. If it recurrs and becomes chronic, it can become more challenging. There are otc pills (ask druggist) or see your dr. For antibiotics - drink lots of water! don't let embarrassment keep you from getting help. It's very common and especially in young women. Long ago i got help from a wise older woman.

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!

Yes: Change of urine color is often due to taking prenatal vitamins, especially if the color is "bright". Not drinking enough water also can cause urine to be a dark yellow. Aim to drink enough water to make urine almost colorless. If urine appears red or blood tinged, a physician should be consulted.

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!

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.
A member asked:

How long do UTI symptoms last. Been on cipro (ciprofloxacin) since weds. Am voiding better but still have need to go all the time.?

One day or one week: Since today is thursday i assume you have only been on medication for one day and it takes more time than that for symptoms to resolve. If you have been on medication for a week then you need to see the dr. Because you may have resistant organism to cipro (ciprofloxacin). That is not uncommon.
