garlicy urine odor

I have noticed a very strong garlic type odor to when I urinate for the last four or five days. I notice that it is especially strong during the first void of the day. There are no other symptoms (burning, urgency, itching). I did take a sulfa antibiotic last week for three days. I have searched for an answer as to this odor to no luck.

Sometimes antibiotics or certain foods can cause an odor or discoloration to the urine.
I would look at any new food items you have added to your diet, or any new medications taken in the past few days. see if there is any change if you remove them from your diet.
