Im a healthy female, who is on birth control. now before i was on it i didnt have this problem. Within a few hours or a day of having intercourse my urine has had this strange scent to it. it will go away a little after a week and as soon as i have intercourse again its back. i dont have that much funds so idk if im going to be able to go to the doctor about it. i get my pills at discount through planned parenthood.
could the pills be causing this or does my partner have an infection that i dont know about.

Hi there, cutenswt9.

Have you experienced any other strange things concerning your urination? Have you been having to go frequently, and is there any pain associated with it? Any blood, possibly?

I ask because those would be symptoms of a urinary tract infection, (UTI), and they often appear in women when they have intercourse. If that sounds like your affliction, you may want to get checked out by a doctor whenever this occurs, if possible. They can best suss out what may be causing this.

Other than that, I was going to ask how well you are hydrated. Do you drink plenty of water, and frequently? You'll know when you're getting enough because your urine will not be cloudy, it will be almost clear and not very yellow. When you're dehydrated, your urine may have a strong smell to it.

I don't know why this would manifest around the time you have intercourse, but you may want to up your water intake around those times and see how it turns out for you.
