About

Asymptomatic bacteriuria (ASB) is defined as the presence of at least 105 colony-forming units (CFU)/ml of 1 or 2 bacterial species in clean-voided midstream urine sample from an individual without symptoms of UTI

Full description

ASB is common in women and increases in prevalence with age and/or sexual activity, due to short urethra, pregnancy, easy contamination of urinary tract with fecal flora The pregnant women are two times more commonly affected than age matched non pregnant females.
