What the Yuck: My pee is bright green!

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: My pee is suddenly bright green, even though I drink tons of water. What’s going on?

Normally, the color of your urine should be between almost clear and dark yellow.

Neon-green pee may look alarming, but it’s usually just a sign that you’re getting too much of certain vitamins - B vitamins, in particular - and that your body is flushing out the excess.

That said, if you notice it regularly, talk to your doc about whether you should cut back on your B intake.
