    "ammonia" odor?

    sometimes by the end of the day, I seem to have an "ammonia" odor coming from down there

    I mentioned it to my gyno and he made it like it wasn't a big deal, but it really grosses me out!

    any advice on what it could be??

    Hi there,{removed} seeing as how no one else has ansered, i thought i would answer. If your urine smells like ammonia a possible cause could be a UTI

    I don't think it does? I'll have to check next time, haha

    I actually just got over a UTI, do you think it hasn't gone away really?

    Re: "ammonia" odor?

    Hey... I noticed your screen name ... are you dieting? Drastic diets, like very low-carb or low-calorie diets, or starvation, can cause the body to shift to producing ammonia instead of urea as a waste product. When this happens it can seem like the ammonia odor is not really from urine, but just sort of noticeable in the general area.

    On top of the odor, I have a white/slightly yellowish discharge that shows up on my underwear.

    is this just normal? it seems to get stronger when I sweat or workout
