Pregnancy is a risk factor for urinary tract infections. Asymptomatic bacteriuria is the most common type of urinary tract infections ranging between 4-7% and is a significant health risk in pregnancy. Although many different tests have been proposed, quantitative urine culture is still the gold standard method for asymptomatic bacteriuria and it should be performed in the first visit and at regular intervals during pregnancy.In this paper, we discuss the significance of urine culture versus other tests among pregnant women.

Keywords: urinary tract infection, pregnancy, culture.
