Why Do I Have A Fishy Smell After Anal Sex?

I have vaginal and anal sex/ After a fews days go by, I urinate a lot and my urine smells fishy and it's dark in color.

Answer

Hi Trisha

Does it burn when you urinate? Are you having any pain?

Did your partner have anal intercourse with you and then vaginal sex? That scenario could place you at risk for an infection.

I am not a doctor so I cannot tell you why you are having these symptoms. But it does seem that it could be a possibilty that you have some sort of infection. Dark urine...it could just mean it is more concentrated and that you need to drink more fluids...that may also explain the odor.

But why don't you make an appointment with your gynecologist just to make sure. You don't want to have a urinary tract infection or something like that and go untreated.

Thank you for your question.
