A total of 1951 patients were enrolled in this study and the male-female ratio was 1.12:1. Five hundred and ninety four out of 1951(30%) case was positive in bacteriological culture test. Among the positive cases 480(81%) was E. coli and other major bacteria isolated were Staphylococcus aureus (5.5%) Enterococcus spp. (5%), Pseudomonas spp. (1%), Ptoteus spp. (1%). Providencia spp., Acenetobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Citrobacter spp. etc. 38% of female cases were positive for bacteriological culture test in compare to 23.7% of male cases.

Same results were found in antibiotic resistance patterns for others bacteria.
