Ingesting large quantity could mean--potentially- a test could remain positive at upwards six or more days though unlikely. ...Read more
Cloudy urine: This can be due to dehydration, but commonly is due to the sudden change in the pH when it hits the toilet water causing materials otherwise soluble in urine to precipitate out.

In meantime, avoid antihistamines & decongestants which can aggravate issue. ...Read more

My urine stream changed and makes a mess bc it hits the side of the bowl now. It goes out instead of down. I'm 21/F and noticed change after BC pills ?

Perhaps the anatomy related to the lack of menstruation, or change in regularity, has affected your sphincter muscle strength?? Or perhaps you have a UTI (urinary tract infection) and has weakened your urethral sphincter? Do you have other symptoms (pain on urination, murky urine, fever, abdominal cramping)? ...Read more

Urination: If this is new, it may be due to a blockage, such as from a stone, in your urethra. Generally accompanied by significant pain.
