Why does my wee smell like beef?

I wasn't really sure whether to post on here or health, so i'm sorry if this is the wrong topic... confused

Basically, myself and DH (of 5 years) have been going through a rough patch for the last 6 months or so. About 4 ish months ago the arguing got particularly bad and we started to call each other out about the tiniest things leading to some quite explosive rows. This led me to move out and stay with my mother for a while, which was less than enjoyable but i don't want to get into that.

i've now moved back into our house as we have decided to give our relationship another go. We've started going on date nights twice a week, which i'm definitely enjoying as it's nice to just relax with him again. However, i'm seriously struggling to trust him. When we were separated there was a period of maybe 3 or 4 weeks where we didn't talk at all. Meaning i didn't know where he was or what he was doing during that time.

I can't help but have this nagging feeling that he has cheated on me.

This feeling is made all the worse by the fact that my wee smells like beef. Last week we went on a date night to a lovely little italian in town and we got a little drunk and ended up having sex for the first time in months (we stopped doing it before as we started arguing more and more neither of us felt like it). It was lovely to reconnect but now, when i go to the toilet my wee smells distinctly of beef.

I think he has given me an STI - which he clearly caught from someone when we were separated. I can't imagine any other explanation as to why my wee would smell like this. My personal hygiene routine hasn't changed. The only thing that has changed is that i've have sex with DH.

Please tell me if i'm being silly about this. It's driving me insane.

Does anything hurt or itch?

Drinking 'proper' ground coffee makes my wee smell like beef.

I made up a little song about it 'There's so much fun in coffee-wee' (to the tune of the toffefee (sp?) jingle)

Bloody hell OP flowers for you and all that, but could you not have put a trigger warning or something in the title - I'm just about to have beef pie for me tea! sad

Get a test done. Easy to do in most areas. Find out. And even better get him tested too.

Then you can relax again

I don't think an st would effect wee smell. Maybe a urine infection? Or something you've eaten. Asparagus or similar makes my wee smell odd.

I' m sorry I don't have anything helpful to say but I'm sorry you are having problems, glad you are trying to sort them out, and I really hope this is not am STI!

The only solution here is to get tested ASAP.

pinkflamingo12 Thu 20-Apr-17 19:10:06

I tried to question him about it the other night but he became all defensive and hostile. i'm 99% sure he's cheated on me. What else would he be doing when not talking to me?

I'm sure I've had strong smelling wee in the past despite being happily married!! It will be something you've eaten.

WinterRose92 Thu 20-Apr-17 19:11:27

Sometimes certain things I eat or drink can make my wee smell weird! But if you are worried I would go get yourself checked out and him. I hope things work out well flowers

More like uti? Asparagus makes my wee smell like pure fart and sugarpuffs, too!

XiCi Thu 20-Apr-17 19:11:50

It's probably you're mind in overdrive because you think he has cheated on you. The only way to be sure though is to get tested.

chastenedButStillSmiling Thu 20-Apr-17 19:14:03

it sounds like two different issues to me.

You can get some medical checks to make sure it isn't an STD, but even if you get the all-clear, it sounds to me like you've got some trust issues with your OH???

Are you my DP? He swears his wee smells of beef when he's ill.

MrsTwix Thu 20-Apr-17 19:17:21

I think it's more likely a UTI.

HermioneJeanGranger Thu 20-Apr-17 19:18:11

If I don't have enough to drink, my wee smells strong. It sounds like you don't trust your DH and are searching for proof. I don't think you'd notice evidence of an STI that quickly anyway confused

MunchMunch Thu 20-Apr-17 19:18:29

Could it not just be because you've started having sex with him again after a long while so you can detect any changes in smells etc?

If I eat fish from the chippy the next day my wee absolutely stinks of fish so I very rarely eat it now. So maybe something you've ate or as others suggest a urine infection?

pinkflamingo12 Thu 20-Apr-17 19:19:03

He didn't talk to me for almost 4 weeks, any other person would have trust issues too if that happened. I mean, what was he doing? Except sleeping around...

LemonsAndLollies Thu 20-Apr-17 19:20:25

Every time I've had meat-smelling wee (ugh, sorry) it's been caused by a water infection. I'd think that was most likely but a visit to the GUM clinic couldn't hurt.

MunchMunch Thu 20-Apr-17 19:21:57

Also, did you split up or did you just move out to give you both some space?

Is he on the same page as you regarding this as well, he might have thought you'd broken up and had sex with someone else but didn't realise he'd actually cheated on you so now feels defensive about it.

PeppaPigTastesLikeBacon Thu 20-Apr-17 19:22:13

Op, did you cheat on your DP in the 3 weeks you wasn't talking to him? What else would you be doing when not talking to him?

We can't tell you if you have an STI by the smell of your wee. A trip to the drs can though. HTH

ineedamoreadultieradult Thu 20-Apr-17 19:22:24

Your lack of trust in your partner is entirely unrelated to your wee smelling of beef. Deal with the two issues seperately or you will come across a bit unhinged of your proof of him cheating is him not talking to you and beefy wee.

Mine smells that way I'm dehydrated it could just be that. Either way get an STI test
