Colours of the rainbow?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi ladies well not all colours but do any of you lovely ladies out there have massively different coloured urine regularly? Mine is mostly "normal" but today and recently I've had bright -really bright- yellow urine?? I do eat an awful lot of fruit everyday so is it vitamin c excess maybe or another peri condition?? As always I've now started to worry and need some advice if pos before its off to my doc again!

Thanks so much for any experiences you ladies have had on this issue xxxx

    hi louise,

    usually we see colours of the rainbow if there is some form of oil floating on top....is the pan clean to start with or the flushing water ? or it could be some medication...i always check the colour and texture of stool and urine too...a habit

      Hiya the urine itself is normal it's just really bright yellow as though I've added yellow food colouring. I eat a really healthy diet so wondered if I am having to much fruit. Stools have been checked and all good but I'll get my urine tested and see doc. Thanks for your reply xxx

    Hi Louise...since being in peri another symptom i have had has been a burning sensation just as i start to go to the toilet. I have never had UTIs or Thrush so thought i had better go to doctor. Had tests and all good. It has happened on and off for the last four months near mid cycle so another weird symptom. Sometimes my urine can be quite yellow....i drink heaps more water and it comes right....i think even though i am drinking more water the drenching sweats may be dehydrating me? Just a thought. I know beetroot and foodcolourings can change the colour of your urine so it could be that. If you are concerned go and get a quick urine test at the docs but try upping the water and see how that helps? smile

    Are you having any b vitamins? They make urine worrying bright yellow/green almost luminous.

    Hi Louise, I had this symptom last week, I've never had it before but i noticed after I'd passed urine that the toilet paper was bright yellow (sorry for the description lol)

    Don't think I have a urine infection or anything so not sure what caused it

    I never really paid much attention to it and it went away

    Let me know if it happens again and I'll also do the same

    Take care xx
