Beets are not causing the discoloration in your urine. you should have your bladder or prostrate checked by a doctor.

Welcome to Fluther.

I agree with the first respondent; a week of color in urine seems excessive. I’d recommend getting that checked. (And stop beeting off, if that’s what it’s all about.)

@john: Psst… she doesn’t have a prostate.

See a doctor AT ONCE.

I’ve never heard of this. I like beets but don’t recall noticing pink. It may be blood in your urine; you could have a bladder infection. See your doctor.

Beets don’t affect the color of everyone’s urine, and there isn’t a set amount of time before it wears off. In my familiy, my mother isn’t affected at all, my father pees red/pink once after too many beets, and I could fake menstruation for two or three days if I practically think about eating beets.

That said, I think a week is probably excessive. I’d see a doctor if I were you.
