These 5 Causes Might Be The Reason Why Your Urine Smells Bad

These could be the cause of that nasty smell 

It happens to all of us: while peeing you notice it doesn’t smell too good. What’s the cause? There are a few things that could be causing this. We’ve compiled a list for you. 

1. The food you eat

We all know that eating asparagus can cause bad smelling pee. But did you know that Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, curry, and alcohol can have the same effect? They all cause you to pee out sulfur which makes for a pretty nasty smell. Unfortunately, in this case there’s not much that can be done about it except for watching what you eat and accepting the fact that your pee won’t be smelling very fresh. 

2. Pregnancy 

One symptom of pregnancy in the early stages is smelly urine which is caused by changing hormone balances. You’ll also have to pee more often during the first phase of a pregnancy. Pregnant women produce more blood which flows throughout the whole body, and thus through the kidneys as well. This means they produce more urine as well. But don’t get worried just yet: having to pee often and smelly pee don’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant. However, if you notice an increased amount of discharge or frequent yeast infections, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to take a pregnancy test or head to your doctor for a checkup.
