|URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
|Kampala International University
|Urinary tract infection is widespread among pregnant women and is accompanying adverse maternal, fetal, and neonatal outcomes. Even so, no data exist regarding this problem in Bushenyi, the catchment area for KIUTH to guide specific management and thus to avert the adverse consequences. The aims is to assess the urinary tract infection among pregnant women attending ANC in KIUTH first trimester and its associated risk factors and to investigate the most common antibacterial agent used by infected pregnant women, in a total of about 350 pregnant women who attend the obstetrics and gynecology clinic with the inclusion criteria are to be included. The clinical symptoms such as frequency of micturition, dysuria, lower abdominal pain, urine color change, painful burning sensation, incomplete bladder evacuation will be utilized among the infected women. Since the symptoms are a good predictor for urinary tract infection during pregnancy, so early screening for pathogens and proper treatment for infected cases should be instituted.
