Asymptomatic Bacteriuria

Diagnosis of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria

Clinicians should screen for ASB with a urine culture once at a visit early in prenatal care. There is insufficient evidence to recommend for or against repeat screening during pregnancy after a negative initial culture result.

Acute Cystitis

Diagnosis of Acute Cystitis

Clinicians should evaluate patients with symptoms of acute cystitis with a urine culture. UTI should be suspected based on the presence of symptoms, may be supported by a positive urinalysis result, and is confirmed by urine culture showing 100,000 CFU/mL or more.
