You have a urinary tract infection
One of the first signs of a UTI is pee that has a strong ammonia, foul, or even slightly sweet scent. The bacteria causing the infection produce the smell as a byproduct and can also give your urine a cloudy or bloody appearance. If you suspect a UTI, talk to your doctor immediately as antibiotics are very effective at clearing them up and preventing future problems. You can also try these home remedies to prevent UTIs.
You eat a healthy diet
If you’re one of the roughly 50 percent of people whose pee is, ahem, perfumed after eating asparagus then you know that what you eat can affect your urine. But the green stalks aren’t the only plant to change the color or odor of your pee. Strong coffee can produce a vanilla-like smell, rhubarb and blueberries can give you purplish-pink pee, and beets are so great at scaring people by turning their pee red that there’s even a name for it: beeturia. Don’t let smells or technicolor toilet bowl worry you, however, as it is just the byproduct of your body digesting these healthy foods!
