Urinary tract infections are the most common bacterial infections. Females are more susceptible to UTIs. It can be symptomatic or asymptomatic affecting the upper or lower urinary tract. For diagnosis, the samples were taken suprapubic and swabbed on the culture media, incubated for a day or two, and then the colonies were counted using colony-forming units. The results show the incidence rate is higher in females than in males and a p-value that is not significant and rejected using SPSS (chi-square test). And an antibiotic sensitivity test for asymptomatic bacteriuria and what kind of antibiotic these bacteria were more susceptible for.
