Infection: The odor is likely ammonia and urea. This odor indicates infection. It is likely that an infection exists. It is possible that a fistula exists between vagina and bladder. It is possible that a cervical or vaginal infection exists. The work up requires urinalysis, urine culture, GYN exam, and vaginal and cervical cultures.ur
