I don't think your symptoms are related to the birth control pills. It sounds like you may be dealing with another yeast infection, a UTI (urinary tract infection) or both. I recommend you see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck

Urine is often odorless. There are some diseases like diabetes that may create odors in the urine and some bacteria that grow in standing urine may produce odors. Urine odor may have a strong ammonia quality as well.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

why does the urine sometimes smell sour?

Sour like vinegar?

Haven't heard of urine smelling sour like vinegar. Urine can smell stronger (more ammonia / urea odor) if one isn't drinking enough water. It can smell like ketones during fasting or certain medical problems. Some foods give urine odd aromas, such as after eating asparagus. A primary care doctor can evaluate if one keeps having such aroma symptoms, to rule out urine infection, and look for causes.

For the past two days when go to the bathroom I can smell this sour strong smell from my urine. I have no symptoms besides the smell what could it be?

? Urinary infection

Foul smelling urine can be a single isolated symptom of a UTI. Foods such as asparagus make urine small for a short time, but not >24hrs. Worth getting your urine checked to rule out a UTI. Good Luck

Can penicillin cause foul smelling urine?

See below

Urine
Penicillin is excreted in the urine. It causes a distinct medicinal smell that I would not describe as foul. It smells the same way the penicillin tastes in tablet form or how it smells if you melt a tablet in water.

Can foul smelling urine indicate possible uti?

Yes

Urine
Foul smelling urine can indicate a possible urinary tract infection. You need a urinalysis and urine culture done by your physician to assess and possibly treat if you have a UTI. Also, the underlying risk factors for a UTI must be assessed for men and women both, especially if recurrent UTIs occur.
