Some of the causes of foul smelling urine can be:
Diet: coffee, asparagus
Infection: bladder, prostate or any where along the urinary tract
Dehydration: concentrated urine has a strong smell
Diabetes: has a fruity odor in ketoacidosis
One of the common causes is infection which can be diagnosed and treated easily by your doctor. You should visit your doctor for a urine examination and evaluation to find out the exact cause and treatment for the foul smell.
Take care and do write in if you need more information.
For the last few weeks my urine has smelled so bad that I am ashamed for anyone to follow behind me in the bathroom. It is very cloudy and smells like a cross between rotten eggs and amonia (ammonia). I have a little right flank pain and no other symptoms such as fever. I did notice that it it became prominent after having sex with my husband. We don't hve sex very often since we both are a two different schedules for work and he has a very bad hip. What could it be.
