Urinary tract infections during pregnancy

Urinary tract infections occur in between 2–8% of pregnant women.

Effective Guideline for Cystitis Treatment

20-30% of pregnant women are especially sensitive to acute infections of the upper urinary tract in which asymptomatic bacteriuria turns into pyelonephritis.

A decreased tone and weakening of the motility of the ureters, as well as transient vesicoureteral reflux, is thought to be a principal cause.

The use of catheters during childbirth and during postpartum lochia (Postpartum bleeding), are considered to be additional contributing factors.
