Urine smell

JasonPgh profile image

I saw this question before but I don’t recall if it was here or somewhere else.

I’m still wearing pads for drips and spurts of pee. I’ve noticed there is a definite smell down there and not sure if my urine smells different, if it’s coming from urine in the pad or because things aren’t as dry as normal.

Any ideas?

My husband didn't notice any smell. How often are you changing your pads? Are you well hydrated? Is it possible you have a UTI?

For a while when I first went on zytiga my urine had a really bad smell. But it eventually went away.

On xtandi I lost some control and leaked more. This caused an odor and I had to change pads more often.

All normal males smells go in the can . New improved chemistry has its own unique smell. I wonder as I pee in nature wtf ? The coyote thinks when he takes a wiff of that. . I’m sure he smells there is a problem chemically .

I lost underarm

Hair and smell too . No more doeed stick . I put on an old jacket that still had my musky smell on it. And it was strong. Over four years no more musk . Se La Ve !

Even a small amount of urine in the pad will make it have the familiar urinary odour. Changing it at least once daily should improve the situation

change the pads often - carry one in the back pocket

and yes - my underarm and body hair - gone - also the man smell so I spend a lot of time sniffing men try not to get caught but since I have a reputation as a perv ... ( wink )

Yeah: stop worrying. Some slight urine smell in your underwear/shield is expected. No one else can smell it.

I bought a toilet seat bidet. I wash my lower parts frequently. I cant imagine any older person not having one. Loose ability to wipe from a stroke? No problem. Wash and dry with the push of a button. Heated seat and heated water. For you guys, automatic seat lowering.

I tried to reply and think I may have accidentally his report.

I’ve been thinking of one for a while but haven’t decided what to get.

Costco sells the bio bidet for $249.00 same brand as mine which is over 5 years old. I won't live without one. Back when I bought my first one it was $400.00. You can spend more for endless warm water but these have plenty of warm water. Only down fall is they require a 110v outlet near the back of the toilet. I am a jack of all trades so I just ran a new 110v line from a near by plug. I have them in every bath now. Edit:: this model does not have air dry like mine, but I don't use it anyway. But if I had a stroke I would buy one with air dry.
