Question
I have had a uti before although I don't get them often I do know what it should look and smell like. Usually it is a dark cloudy color and has a strong urine smell. Recently I have been going to the bathroom a lot more than I usually do, my urine is a really bright yellow which I don't think I've ever seen before, and it has the absolute strongest smell I've ever smelt come from piss. Usually when I am hydrated or even over hydrated my urine is more so clear and has no smell. Can you help me? Could I be pregnant? I can't really judge whether or not I'm pregnant by my period because I never know how late or how early it will be. Some times it will be around the same time and then some times it will come at the end of the month instead of consistently at the beginning.

Answer
It could be some other infection besides UTI. You should go to your doctor and get tested. Do you have any other pregnancy symptoms? Or you can get a pregnancy test in order to rule that out. You can get a free pregnancy test at a local pregnancy resource center. You can find one by going to http://www.optionline.org
Will it be a problem if you are pregnant? Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com and we can talk more. Hope to hear from you soon.
