Urinary infections in pregnancy

UTI in pregnant women requires careful surveillance. Asymptomatic bacteriuria should always be excluded during early pregnancy because it tends to develop into a full-blown infection. Acute cystitis is treated for 10 to 14 days with any of the following antimicrobials: cephalexin, amoxycillin/potassium clavulanate or nitrofurantoin (if a beta-lactam antibiotic is contraindicated). The dosages are the same as for other groups. Asymptomatic bacteriuria should be treated with a week-long course.
