Urinary disorders in women with recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI) are a serious problem that has not yet been solved despite that there are a large number of papers on this topic. Pregnant women who have experienced acute urinary tract infection and those who have been treated for asymptomatic bacteriuria should be followed up until delivery, by examining their urine to prove the efficiency of antibacterial therapy that can threaten their pregnancy. It is necessary to emphasize the importance of prevention, timely detection of signs of UTI in pregnant women and the correct choice of antibiotic therapy in the developed UTI.
