Screening is not recommended for cystitis in a general population. However, pregnancy is an indication for screening for the presence of bacteria in the urine, as this may require aggressive treatment unlike other settings. Other situations that require screening for asymptomatic bacteriuria are prior to urologic surgery or for the research purposes.


  • Screening is not recommended for cystitis in a general population.
  • Screening is recommended to detect bacterial presence in the urine of pregnant women. Urine culture is done to screen this population for bacterial presence.[1][2]
