The presence of bacteria in urine without any indications or symptoms is known as asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB). This illness affects people of all ages, but women, especially pregnant women, are more vulnerable than males due to a small urethra and easy fecal flora contamination of the tract. The goal of this study is to find out how common asymptomatic bacteriuria is among LIMU students. After being cultured, 13 samples exhibited bacterial growth, with 3 samples belonging to the male gender and 9 samples belonging to the female gender, with 25.0 percent and 83.3 percent respectively. A P value was determined to check whether there was any association between gender differences (P=0.004). According to a study conducted in Iran, the overall prevalence of ASB among pregnant women was found to be 12%.
