Urinary tract infection caused by bacteria leads to inflammation and over growth of uropathogens and prevalence of infection for both genders, but women are more vulnerable especially at the sexually active ages. Nine isolates from sixteen patients were microscopically tested, characterized, identified using different media and biochemical tests. The highest rate of isolated bacteria were Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus (23.52%), followed by Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Entrococcus faecalis (17.64% and 8.82), respectively and Entrobacter aerogenes, Klebsiella pneumonia, Proteus vulgaris and Pseudomonas aeruginosa were (5.88%), only 2.94% of bacteria was detected as Proteus miralilis. Effect of different antibiotics was reported, maximum effect showed by gentamycin and chloramphenicol (80% and 70%), respectively. Contrastingly, levofloxacin 50%, amikacin and nitrofurantoin 40%, ceftriaxone and amoxicillin 30%, Cefixime 10%. In conclusion, unsuitable medication prior to urine culturing causes to increase prevalence of gram positive bacteria as much as gram negatives and developing multidrug resistance
