Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) is an infection caused by the presence and growth of
microorganism anywhere in the urinary tract. This study aims at determining the most
common microorganism that causes UTI in honeymoon women, detection the most
effective antimicrobial agents that causative agents of UTI and select the best antibiotics
for treated UTI. One hundred and thirty specimens were collected from women suspected
with UTI {honeymoon (95) and other women (35)} in al-Qassim hospital; during the period
(January 2012 to 30th September 2012).The bacterial isolates were identified tested for
antibiotics sensitivity test6. Honeymoon women were showing higher rate of UTI than

other women in (87 from 95) (91.5 %) and (19 from 35) (54.3%) respectively. E. coli (46%)
and Staphylococcus aureus (42%) were predominant isolate in honeymoon. Regarding
Antibiotics sensitivity test, E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus showed highly sensitive to
Nitrofurantoin (100%), (94.5%) followed by Amikacin (90%), (85%), Gentamicin (88.2%),
(75%) and ciprofloxacin (80.7%) (88%) respectively, while Oxacillin were not effective
against tested isolates. In summary, Honeymoon women were showing higher rate of UTI
than other women. E. coli was isolated more than other bacteria that causing UTI in
honeymoon women. Most bacterial isolates was showed highly sensitive to Nitrofurantoin
and resistance to Oxacillin.
