Discharge that smells like ammonia?

Hi there,

For a few weeks now, I have had a discharge that smells like ammonia. I have no other symptoms (fever, pain etc) and I was just wondering if anyone knows why? i've done some internet searching and I've come up with nothing?

I am curious to know is it because it's hot out? It's kind of embarassing.

Any info would be appreciated!

Re: Discharge that smells like ammonia?

Your discharge may actually be coming from your urethra and not your vagina. It may be a small amout of urine (which can have an ammonia smell). Do you ever notice after you cough, sneeze, laugh etc, ? You did not mention your age or if you had given birth, but both can cause a small amount of urine leakage from time to time. It is VERY common and lots of women have it but are embarrased about it. if it continues or gets worse I would see my OB/GYN to see what it is and what treatment is appropriate. Good luck

Re: Discharge that smells like ammonia?

Ive had this too lately, not all the time but right when im going pee and then when im done and im about to wipe i notice it, but then thats it. and ive never had it before it started getting hot i thought it might be that also. but then sometimes i smell nothing at all. so im really weirded out too, i just keep checking because i dont want it to be an infection because i had BV once and it was the worse thing ever! But is this an actual discharge, or urine?
It never hurts to smile :-D

Re: Discharge that smells like ammonia?

I get the amonia smell in discharge when i have BV. When i take antibiotics the BV clears up and sometimes the BV isn't that bad and when i get my next period it clears up on its own.

I only noticed this happening with my current partner. I never had BV at all before with my exhusband, so there has to be some connection with my current partner.
