Hi Mommas, I've been lurking for awhile but this is my first time posting because I have a "TMI" question I don't think would be well received on most other mom sites. My beebs is almost 4 months old and since the lochia stopped, I've noticed that sometimes when I wipe post-pee, I have a really strong "old urine" smell...kinda like it's been sitting there like a diaper pail. It comes and goes-I normally shower every other day so on the days when I didn't shower it seems to be worse. I've never had this problem before and had a well woman checkup last week and the midwife said everything looked normal. I have no idea what's going on...I haven't noticed incontinence and it seems like a fistula would be pretty apparent from a vaginal exam(?). My only theories are 1.) I'm having mild incontinence I don't notice and it starts to get stinky after a day or 2.) Milk production has somehow changed the scent of my urine. Does anyone have any theories as to what is going on?
Thanks for the suggestion! I did a quick google search and that seems to fit...I've noticed some prolapse and kinks seem to be associated with that. I was expecting stretch marks but I was definitely not prepared for all the other changes childbirth brings !
