Why would my urine smell like a farm? I'm hydrating with lots of water, and I only have one cup of coffee in the morning. It's such a nasty smell.

Please tell me why I pee fertilizer!

My guess is that you are an idiot with too much time on your hands.

Do you eat lots of asparagus? Or take vitamins? Or both? Things you eat and medications and supplements can make your pee smell.

pnuttycorn nailed it. Your taking in something, medicinal or otherwise, that makes your urine smell strong. That or you have a rare tropical disease and your about to die a horrendous, painful death.

In his hilarious essay "Fart Proudly" Benjamin Franklin said that drinking turpentine was said to make urine smell like a rose, so women would drink turpentine to make their piss smell sweet. You might check with a medical expert before you try this.

Have you had a urinalysis lately? You might have a urinary tract infection.

Cystitis can be caused by several problems. Those can range from ingestion of Vitamin B6 or asparagus to diabetes or urinary tract infection. Either way, if this is a habit for you, I'd be going to a walk in clinic at least. They should be able to do a urinalysis and hopefully fix the issue.

Does it burn when you pee? (UTI's typically cause a burn/sting during urination), Is it very dark yellow? Is the smell constant, each time you pee? Or just during certain times of day?

If there's no stinging/weird colour, you are probably ok and it's just what you are ingesting. Try eliminating one food at a time and see which one is the culprit. I've noticed coffee makes mine stink an hour or two after a drink one. Try drinking some cranberry juice too, that's supposed to be good for cleaning out your urinary tract.

I once tried a high protein diet that required me to consume the whites of six boiled eggs for lunch. A few hour later I could take a piss that was as nasty as any boiled egg fart I ever smelled.

Just cut out eating all those flat green "spinach pies", that`s what`s making your piss smell of farmyards and fertilizer....the rest of us call them cow pats.

Simple answer: nitrogenous compounds (like uric acid) and assorted other salts and impurities that the kidneys elimininate from your circulatory system. I was also thinking UTI (urinary tract infection) like some other readers. Go to a urologist and give a hearty squirt for some tests. Bonus points awarded if your urologist is female and cute! And don't forget to flush the toilet after you pee, fermenting piss smells worse over time!

This topic is a little off focus, this is POOP REPORT, not ALL EXCRETIONS REPORT. Next thing you know, some idiot will be asking questions about sputum and boogers (not the same things).

So glad the Capt cleared that up because I thought I was coughing up boogers there for a minute.

The same can be said for the phrase “explosive diarrhea.”

It smells because you are eating a lot of vitamins. It's nothing to worry about.

It could be supplements, alcoholic drinks, sweet foods, dairy; I get that sometimes and it'll smell like ammonia. Keep drinking water, cranberry juice (with apple if that helps), and don't wait too long to use the chamber of secrets.

I've been on a binge drinking nothing but Sambuca (sp?) for 2 weeks, a 26er a day and my pee smells exactly like licorice. I wonder if my anus smells of anise too.

P.S. My poops are almost white

White or light colored (clay-colored) poop is a sign of hepatitis...please see a medical Dr. soon. I don't know anything about how pee smells after drinking so much Sambuca, but you really need to drink more water too....8 glasses a day of 8 ounces each....flush that bladder out!
