what causes a foul smell in discharge and urine?

Infection: Discharge or urine should never smell bad and generally indicates an infection. You need to get tested for vaginal infection, sexually transmitted infection and urinary tract infection. Gonorrhea, trichomonas, bacterial vaginosis have a bad odor, chlamydia and yeast less likely. Any partners should be tested and treated as well.
