Depends what you: The smell of urine is due to what you eat. Have you eaten popcorn recently? You can see your physician to see if there are other issues.

See answer: Urine odor can depend of many things including hydration level, food or medication, infection or even systemic illness. It alone is uncommonly a cause for concern in the absence of any other symptoms or signs. A checkup and urinalysis would help determine if there is an abnormality, but it is unlikely to be a sign of disease.

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.
