Smelly urine: It could be bacterial vaginosis (bv). Go see your doctor.
Dr. Hunter Handsfield
Infectious Disease 53 years experience
Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of strong vaginal odor, sometimes with discharge, is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of bacteria. The STD trichomonas causes the same odor, and other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) are more common in women with BV and could cause burning. (Usually no burning with BV itself.) See a doctor soon for diagnosis, treatment, and STD testing. Good luck!

Yes: The presence of blood in the urine, stools, painful urination or painful bowel movements could be due to involvement of these organs with endometriosis but other conditions such ass ic, other tumors of the bladder or bowel need to be excluded. Inflammatory bowel diseases like crohn's/colitis needs to be excluded.

A 44-year-old member asked:

I fell and hurt my hand. I had an x-ray, which showed no fracture. But I still have a terrible pain. What can I do?

Depends: X-rays show bones and their relationship to each other. An x-ray will not show crushed tissue, though it will show swelling. Swelling makes nerves send pain signals to the brain. Pain medication (anti-inflammatories) will help, as will elevation, immobilization and resting the hand. If not sure what was injured, go see your local hand surgeon for expert evaluation, make sure ligaments are ok.

A 24-year-old female asked:

I have visible blood in my urine and went to hospital and they said I had a UTI infection but my left kidney is in bad pain, is this from a uti?

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
