Urine smells nutty or like sulfur. why is that?

Urine smells nutty or like sulfur. why is that?

Here are some ...: Urine smell reflects what you consumed, how concentrated the urine is, and how your unique sense of smell is. In general, it's good idea to ignore urine odor as long as urinalysis from properly collected urine specimen is normal and you void well with steady continuous flow and feeling bladder empty. More? Seek evaluation and counseling timely.

May be normal: Typically your urine can smell secondary to infections if it is malodorous but you also have associated burning or discomfort when urinating known as dysuria this may be urine infection and you should be treated with an antibiotic. However, if it is just odor it may not be abnormal would be worthwhile getting a urine analysis sometimes foods or drinks can cause this type of issue.

When your water breaks does it have a slight oder? Which sort of smells like salt and vinegar chips

When your water breaks does it have a slight oder? Which sort of smells like salt and vinegar chips

Ruptured membranes: Indeed. Comically, I tell my girls to put a small jar of pickles in their bag. If their water breaks in a public place, say the grocery store or post office, throw and smash the jar of pickles and as they send people to clean up, quietly leave the store unnoticed in all the fuss.

Diet?: Gastointestinal issues are almost always dependent on diet. Try eliminating sulfur containing foods from your diet. If you are over age 50 or have a family history of colon cancer, you should also get a colonoscopy.

Triage said my amniotic sac didn't tear but still watery fluid coming out when I push smells like cemen and also clear like water! Could they be wrong?

Triage said my amniotic sac didn't tear but still watery fluid coming out when I push smells like cemen and also clear like water! Could they be wrong?

It's possible: It can be ambiguous as other things can mimic leakage of amniotic fluid like urine or normal discharge. Sometimes a small hole in the sack can be intermittently plugged by the babies head like a cork. This could cause ongoing leakage. You should call your prenatal care provider's office in the morning so that this can be rechecked. Call sooner if you're experiencing fever or any vaginal bleeding.

Would a brita filter out the sulfur in water?

Not sure: Reviewed Zerowater filter with Brita filter. No listing for sulfur in water in either. Hydrogen sulfide smell or like rotten eggs can be due to contamination in the well. Seek a water treatment professional or well water testing facility to ask about chlorine correct of the well. Dont want coliform contamination. Hope this is useful.

If my tap water smells like grass and I am allergic to grass would it still be safe to cook with?

That smell coming: from the tap water may not be grass. Infact, I would be quite surprised if it was grass. You can have the quality of your water checked if concerned about contaminants.

Vaginitis: Sounds like it may be bacterial vaginosis or trichomonas, but the best thing you can do is to see a gynecologist and get this examined, diagnosed and treated appropriately.

Period cycle started 10 days ago. Last few days I've experienced occasional "bursts" of watered down blood that smells. Should I see a gyno?

You may need to: check for a vaginal infection. If there are no other symptoms, such as vaginal itching, odor, etc. then you may be starting irregular spotting/ periods with your hormone cycle at your age. It could be very early on, or minor spotting may be a fluke. But if it continues, you may need to see a GYN or family physician to help you regulate your cycle to be more predictable.

Possible UTI: Given unusual smell and characteristics, one would suspect a urinary tract infection. Other more nefarious causes are rare. Initial evaluation for a urinary tract infection involves going in for a medical evaluation and urinalysis.

It might be blood?: if your cervical stump was left (supra cervical hysterectomy) then some endometrium may have had a chance to grow and bleed with the old blood looking "yellow" in color from decomposition. If not, then see your previous surgeon and find out why the vagina is "leaking" a possible "urine like" substance
