Abstract

The probability of delivering premature infants and low birth weights is significantly higher among those who experienced UTIs during pregnancy. A multivariate analysis revealed that UTI was one of the main contributors to pre-mature deliveries. The urinary tract infections with pregnancy still constitute a big problem with high incidence. The empirical anti-microbial therapy cannot be relied upon because of possible risk of resistance due to overuse of the drugs. Therefore, this study aims at isolation and identification of bacteria on the basis of their cultural, morphological and biochemical characteristics and to study the antibiotics resistance pattern of the isolated bacteria from urine sample of pregnant and non-pregnant women. This study finds the common inhabitants and contaminants responsible for UTI in pregnant and non-pregnant women and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern.
