Abstract:

Worldwide, urinary tract infection (UTIs) is one of the most common bacterial infections in women and it’s depending on the individual’s wash practices and socioeconomic status. The objectives of this study were to assess hygiene and wash practices and the associated factors of urinary tract infections in non-pregnant women, Odisha, in order to find this a cross-sectional study was carried out at Bhubaneswar, Capital Hospital from March 2015 to March 2017 in non-pregnant women of age group between 20-65 years. Out of 766 midstream urine samples (MSU), 323(42.1%) samples were found to be UTI positive. From the defined age group, mainly 20-35 years age group women have showed the highest percentage (64.09%) of infection. After adjusting the confounders, clinical recurrent infection (OR- 3.65, 95% CI 2.24-5.95, p≤0.001), vaginal wash (OR-0.10, 95% CI 0.07- 0.14, p≤ 0.001) and full body bath (OR- 0.26, 95% CI 0.13- 0.54 p≥0.001). E. coli was the most predominant uropathogens among UTI infected non-pregnant women. Our findings indicate that there is an association between unhygienic practices and UTI and it is important that necessary hygiene practices should be used to prevent UTI.
