See related patient information handout on the causes of painful urinationwritten by the author of this article. Bacterial cystitis is the most common bacterial infection occurring in women. Thirty percent of women will experience at least one episode of cystitis during their lifetime.
Bacterial vaginosis, candidal, trichomonal and Gonococcal vaginal infections are a major health problems associated with gynecologic complications and increase in replication, shedding and transmission of HIV and other STIs in women of reproductive age. The study aimed at determining the prevalence of common vaginal infections and antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of aerobic bacterial isolates in women of reproductive age, attending Felegehiwot referral Hospital. A hospital based cross sectional study was conducted from May to November, Simple random sampling technique was used.
Furred pets in the household are known reservoirs for pathogenic bacteria, but it is not known if transmission of bacteria between pet and owner leads to significantly increased rate of infections. We studied whether cats and dogs living in the household of pregnant women affect the commensal vaginal flora, and furthermore the need for oral antibiotics and rate of urinary tract infections during pregnancy. Detailed information on pet exposure, oral antibiotic prescriptions filled at pharmacy and urinary tract infection during pregnancy was obtained and verified prospectively during clinic visits.
Vaginal discharge and discomfort are common complaints of women through all stages of life. Vaginitis is a frequently encountered problem for providers who take care of female patients.

This study had the objective of to analyze the demographic and bacteriologic data of 32 hospitalized newborns in an neonatal intensive care unit of a public maternity hospital in Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil, seized by Pseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis during a period ranged from July to Julyand to determine the antimicrobial resistance percentage, serotypes and pulsed field gel electrophoresis PFGE patterns of 32 strains isolated during this period. The study group presented mean age of In this group, 20 A total of
Bacterial vaginosis BV and complicated vulvovaginal candidiasis VVC are frequently occurring vaginal infections in postmenopausal women, caused by an imbalance in vaginal microflora. Postmenopausal women suffer from decreased ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. A normal, healthy vaginal microflora mainly comprises Lactobacillus species spp.
Advances in Bladder Research pp Cite as. Urinary tract infections UTIs are among the most common of urologic and bacterial diseases, ranging from asymptomatic bacteriuria to severe kidney infection and occasional renal failure. Research leading to improved prevention or treatment at the early stages of disease progression can result in significant savings to the health care system. Unable to display preview.
