Hi @matthew2001 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! In this community based forum, we’re not medical professionals so we can’t diagnose health problems or prescribe treatments. But we can use our experiences to help other members to find answers.
You’re having to go to the bathroom more frequently than usual and there’s an odor. I know you mentioned this isn’t normal for you. But did you drink a lot of liquid in a short time? Eat anything such as asparagus which can effect the smell of urine? Is there any pain associated with urinating? Do you notice any blood in your urine?
If this hasn’t improved since posting, it could be a UTI (urinarytract infection) which would require a trip to a clinic, even a walk-in clinic can diagnose this. If it is a UTI it’s important to have it treated.
In the meantime drink at least 64 ounces of water daily to keep the kidney’s flushed and water moving through your bladder…and out.
Hi @matthew2001, as per @rozy288's good suggestion, I moved your question to the Kidney & Bladder group here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/kidney-conditions/
As both Rosemary and @loribmt suggested, you should discuss these new symptoms with a medical professional. If it is a urinary tract infection, it should be treated.
Matthew: what you have may be urinary tract infection, as mentioned by others in this discussion. You can look up the symptoms, but you have 2 common ones. I had it and didn’t know that both my wife and daughter had it as well, so males can get it.
With me I also had a mild sensation when urinating, not the pain they describe in websites. I also had a loss of energy, when I don’t have much to spare, and the urine had a darker appearance and bad odor.
There’s no pain in visiting the doctor, they’ll just have you pee in a cup and send it out to the lab, and you’ll get the results in a few days. If you have this, you’ll get a prescription for appropriate antibiotics and that’s it!
@matthew2001, please remember that there are multiple genetic issues which can cause this, as well. I have a few, so I know it would be important to have a lab (Apollo, Sequencing, Nebular, etc.) do a full genome workup. It costs a few hundred, but is much less expensive than going through life trying to nit-pick your way across the ocean without a rudder. Most of these now are done with either a spit sample or blood sample. Very easy. Fine a good geneticist to help you, if you have questions.

Yes thanks I’m still peeing to much but it doesn’t smell
Very pleased to learn of that advise and be knowledgeable. Thanks
Sorry, I took your original comment “and it stinks” to mean that it smelled. However, if you have a urinary tract infection that may change in a few days.
I’m trying to decide whether to have the prolapse surgery or use the device that they suggest
Margaret, what device is being suggested?
Not having surgery because I’ve heard so many complaints about it but use a pessary instead of
