Real strong smelling ( as if bowel movement ) type of odor after urinating
An_194065 posted:
Why does it smell like I had a real bad bowel movement when all I did was pee? This happens more frequent than not lately and it is soooo gross! I smell it mostly as I'm pulling up my pants and flushing the toilet ......I do have some thick white pastey stuff inside my vagina but that has no smell to it at all. If anyone has an answer to this or they have experienced the same, please reply It's driving me crazy!!! Thank-you all.

i know that when your urine has a strong order to it and a heavy yellow color your not drinking enough water. not drinking enough water causes this type of thing to happen to you when you urinate.

It sounds like you could have some kind of infection. You should go get it checked out.

Dear Anon_26858,

In this article on Vaginal Fistula , it mentions "If you have a rectovaginal, colovaginal, or enterovaginal fistula, you most likely have foul-smelling discharge or gas coming from your vagina."

I don't know if this can happen when you urinate, but this is probably something your doctor should check out.

Yours in health,
