I don`t remember
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

What's the color of your urine?

And when you mention strong smell--what does it smell like?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
very strong, and to me , unpleasant urine
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
an odor that lasts after I finish, a couple minutes
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
another person using the stall after me, I am sure gets the odor too.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
there doesn`t seem to be a color change...no pain or burning
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

Assuming you don't have a urinary tract infection then here's what you can do for this--

Oral probiotics

100mg chlorophyll tablet three times a day

Drink lots of water--at least 8 glasses a day

That should clear up the strong smell

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
