How does blood smell: Not sure how blood smells. You could have your doctor do a urinalysis and see if there is microscopic (blood you can't see) in it.

A 42-year-old member asked:

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.
