Patient :For the past couple of days (I'm going to say since about Saturday) I have noticed that my pee is giving off this strong odor that is something like ham/bacon and today it is more of a smoky smell. It seems like it's gotten even stronger. I am an 18-year-old female and I'm pretty healthy. I drink water almost regularly, I don't drink any carbonated beverages. It's not my vagina giving off an unpleasant odor, it's just my pee. Whatever I can do to alleviate and eradicate this altogether would be much appreciated! I thought it had something to do with the spinach artichoke dip I had eaten as well as the grilled chicken (both of which I ate on Saturday) but that seemed kind of odd because those foods aren't known to have that effect. Should I wait a week and see if this goes away? I have ever had one infection which was a yeast infection and I got that taken care of with Monistat.
