My 12 year old daughter has a very strong fishy smell in her urine it's worse on her period . Should I get her tested for TMAU? How do I go about it ?

In brief: Fishy smell

I would rule out the possibility of a vaginal infection first before I would get her tested for TMAU

In brief: Vaginitis

See a physician who can culture any discharge; many common infections in the vagina are not sexually transmitted, but can happen with poor hygiene
