Abstract

Infectious processes of the urinary tract are a group of diseases often encountered in clinical practice. In particular this
applies to pregnant women in early pregnancy who develop functional changes in the urinary tract. The most common
pathological condition during pregnancy is asymptomatic bacteriuria.
For antibacterial drugs, prescribed on the late stages with no consideration of causative agents’ sensitivity, or inadequate
therapeutic doses ascending infection leading to the development of gestational pyelonephritis and other complications of
pregnancy may develop. For best preventive treatment the use of antibiotic therapy, prophylactics like cranberry extract
containing proanthocyanidin A or other demonstrably effective herbal based drugs, is recommended. As for the medical
check-up for this group of patients, it goes without saying that it is obligatory.
