Urinary infection suspect

Hi,

I have a problem of urinating frequently and once I get the feel to urinate I am not able to hold it. Also the urine smells too bad. I have already consult a doctor 6 months ago. She gave some medicines for urinary infection but not recovered yet.  Please suggest me a solution and also tell the reasons for this.

Urine odor and excess urination is related to the volume and concentration of a variety of substances excreted by the kidneys. Normally, urine that contains a lot of water has little to no odor. If your urine becomes highly concentrated — a high level of waste products with little water — urine odor may have a strong ammonia smell.
Many foods and medications, such as asparagus or certain vitamins, can affect the odor of urine. Sometimes, unusual urine odor may indicate a medical condition or disease, such as:
Bladder infection
Cystitis (bladder inflammation)
Diabetic ketoacidosis (high levels of blood acids called ketones)
Gastrointestinal-bladder fistula (abnormal connection between the intestines and bladder)
Maple syrup urine disease (rare genetic disease that causes difficulty breaking down certain amino acids)
Metabolic disorder (a problem with the way your body converts the foods you eat into energy)
Type 2 diabetes (uncontrolled)
Urinary tract infection (UTI)..but most commonly happens due to UTI...consult nearest physician get your urine routine done... Depending upon the reports they will help you further
