Warrants lab work: The fact you have no pain or urgency doesn't mean you don't have an infection..so that needs to be ruled out with at least a urinalysis. I might even send it out for a routine culture. If not an infection the next most likely cause is something you ate, a supplement, or something along those lines.

My urologist said last week that my urine looked fine and no uti, but i've had irritation in my bladder and a strong odor that smells yeasty. Ideas?

See answer : If you are having symptoms of recurrent UTIs (especially urinary frequency and bladder/pelvic pressure, discomfort, or pain) in the presence of an unremarkable urinalysis and negative urine culture, you may well have a bladder problem called Interstitial Cystitis (aka Painful Bladder Syndrome).

If : If it is in fact coming from your urine then you may be dealing with a urinary tract infection (uti). Often times they present with a foul urine odor. In addition with uti's you could experience urinary frequency, burning with urination, and lower abdominal pain. On the other hand if you are a female the smell could be from vaginal discharge. Certain vaginal bacterial infections have a foul odor. Regardless you should be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
