Dear Anon_75320,

I would mention this to your doctor's office. Ask about bringing in a urine sample for testing, or giving a sample at the office the next time you notice the smell. That way, hopefully your doctor can give you some answers.

You may also want to jot down foods you ate and how close/far from your period you are when you notice the smell.

Yours in health,

Thank you for the reply...
I will begin to jot down foods i eat and see...
going to a doctor will be a little difficult for me because of money issues...

Its been 6 days now and my urine smells fine...

I feel i may have hormonal imbalance because my periods are EXTREMELY painful and i am beginning to have facial hair!!
