"Why does some pee foam and not other pee?"

My pee has never "foamed" and this question freaked me out so I'm throwing it to the internet. Anybody have any insight?

My pee has never foamed, but I'm a girl and I sit while I pee, so it's never even bubbly looking... I just asked my boyfriend and he says when he pees with a strong stream it gets a little bubbly, but never foamy.

My cousin (who has kidney problems) said that if each time you pee it's foamy, it means there's excess protein in the urine, and could be a sign that something's wrong with kidney function... Foamy pee maybe once a month is probably just due to ingesting excess protein. (My cousin's dealt with lots of people examining her pee, so she's my go-to pee lady.)

So, unless your husband notices a bunch of foam every time he pees, I think he's okay. It doesn't hurt to see a doctor about it, though, especially if he does see the foam a lot.

I have never noticed foamy pee! Could there be something in the water - toilet cleaner or something, that's there sometimes but not others?

I think this is just a guy thing. And I just figured it came from the, uh... velocity. But what do I know, my knowledge of pee science is underwhelming.

I think the too much protein thing is right on. Like beach foam that caused by organic matter and protein in the water.

I always figured the bubbling was due to the extra height of standing. P-style (and similar devices) users and guys who sit: does your pee bubble or foam?

I don't think this is a medical mystery.

If you pour water into the toilet from waist height, it'll be all bubbly and make a mess. (I urge you all to try this tonight.)

If you pour water into the toilet from toilet-seat height, it'll be all feminine.

This is science.

It always gets all bubbly when you pee into a toilet that's filled with cleaning liquid. I hope that's his problem.

This doesn't really explain why he would say "why does some pee foam and not other pees" because he's probably not changing the distance of his own peeing. Unless ...you know... he is.

Lady water is also acceptable.

As is waterings.

Unless he meant why does some pee (men's) foam, whilst other pee (women's) does not?

I think this solves the mystery. He does all the bathroom cleaning at our house and he usually dumps the cleaning stuff in and leaves it for a while. I bet he's peeing on top of it.
