My urine is stinky at the moment, not sure why

In the last 2 days, I've notice my urine stinks. I know that this could be indicative of a urinary tract infection. However, I've had those before and this has never been a symptom. Also, I'm not experiencing any other symptoms. I don't know if it's possible that it's due to something I'm eating. Lately I'm averaging 2 pomegranates a day. Could that be responsible?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The smell of urine can often be directly linked to diet or medication.Pomegranate is full of B vitamins and B vitamins are a known cause of strong smelling urine so this may be what's causing it.
Also check any medications or other supplements you are taking.
