Jasbir Singh, Dr. Archana Bhat

Abstract: The present study was done to asses the lower urinary tract infection among women and report practices related to hygiene and self care among them. The sample included women inmates (20-50 years) of urban Jammu slums. Three slums were chosen through purposive sampling and sample size was 90. Only married women were included in the study. The Urogenital distress inventory questionnaire by Shumaker et al (1994) was used to assess the degree to which symptoms associated with lower urinary tract infection were present in the selected sample. Results revealed the presence of many symptoms of lower urinary tract infection among women, which needed further investigation and treatment.
