hi ! I’ve noticed that the past couple of months I’ve been getting cloudy pee just once in a while ALWAYS before I start my period. Is this a symptom or just a coincidence ? It is random because my pee is usually a healthy color but becomes cloudy randomly but always during PMS. Thank you!
Cloudy urine is not typically a sign that you are about to have your period. Rather, it is most likely a sign that you are dehydrated. When you don’t have enough water intake your urine concentrates and the sediment in the urine can make it look cloudy. Women in general should drink about 8-12 cups of water per day. If your urine is still cloudy and you are well hydrated I would check in with your primary care doctor to investigate further.
