Fistula

Bladder, Vaginal and Rectal Fistulas

A fistula is an abnormal connection between two organs that are not usually connected.  A fistula between the bladder and the vagina or the colon could cause your urine to smell bad. The fistula would allow bacteria into the bladder that is normally not present. This can make your urine smell bad.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI Infections)

UTIIf your UTI is associated with your bladder, you may experience the following:

  • Pain or discomfort in your lower abdominal area
  • A sensation of pressure in your pelvic area or a constant urge to urinate
  • Blood in your urine
  • Frequent urination
  • Burning during urination

If your UTI stems from an infection in your urethra, you may notice burning during urination.

Can Men or Children Get Urinary Tract Infections?

Yes.  Women are most susceptible to urinary tract infections, but a UTI can happen to anyone.  One of the most common reasons people have stinky urine is that they’ve got a UTI.

Men are more resistant to urinary tract infections than women are.  Even if a man is exposed to the bacteria that cause UTIs, he may not actually develop a urinary tract infection.  Part of the reason for this is that males have longer urethras than females do, so bacteria have to travel further to reach the urinary tract.  In the time that takes, it’s highly likely the bacteria will get flushed out by urination.

Even a baby can get a UTI.  In the case of small children, it is even more important to seek out a doctor’s advice if the child is having symptoms of a UTI.  Children’s immune systems are not yet fully developed, so a UTI can quickly get out of control. The child also may not be able to tell you about the burning during urination or constant urge to urinate.

Could Kidney Stones Cause Stinky Urine?

kidney-stones

Kidney or bladder stones, also known as urinary stones, can cause stinky urine. Urinary stones are more common in men, but women can also get them.

Kidney stones are known for being quite painful. Typically the pain radiates from the flank to the groin or to the genitals and inner thigh area. It tends to come and go in waves lasting about 20 to 60 minutes and is accompanied by the following symptoms:

  • Urgent need to urinate;
  • Painful urination;
  • Red blood cells in the urine, which may turn it a reddish, rusty color;
  • Pus in the urine;
  • Sweating;
  • Restlessness;
  • Nausea and/or vomiting.

Together, these symptoms are known as renal colic.

If you suspect you may have kidney stones, you should seek emergency medical care immediately. The kidney stone can be broken up using ultrasound or removed physically.  Controlling pain is also a high priority.

If you are prone to kidney stones, it’s worthwhile to look into supplements, changes in diet and any other lifestyle changes that could prevent your kidney stones from recurring.  Examples of all-natural supplements that could prevent kidney stones include:

Uriflow Natural Treatment for Kidney Stones 1 – 60 Capsule Bottle

Stone-X – 60 – Capsule

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare UriCare/Cystone, Urinary Comfort, 240 Vcaps, 840mg

Taking a supplement such as Stone-X or Uriflow could reduce or eliminate the recurrence of kidney stones, but it is not the only solution.  You can also read up on many more ways to prevent them in the book:
