Analysis for sowing during pregnancy is a mandatory category. Bacteriological seeding refers to laboratory studies involving the cultivation of bacterial colonies on nutrient media from a taken biological sample (biological fluid, blood, etc.). The study is conducted in order to identify what bacteria caused this or that disease, by smear from the focus of infection. In addition, with the help of sowing, you can find out which antimicrobial drugs are the most unstable pathogen.

During pregnancy a woman must pass:

  • Material on the tank-sowing from the vagina (to determine the presence of infections transmitted by sexual contact).
  • Material on the tank-sowing from the nose (to determine whether pregnant staphylococcus aureus is pregnant). Do not neglect this analysis, because a child after birth can easily become infected with staphylococcus, and this, in turn, is fraught with serious diseases of the baby's nasopharynx.
  • A sample of urine on the tank-sowing (for the diagnosis of latent bacterial cystitis, pyelonephritis). To pass the analysis boringly twice - at the first visit of the female consultation and at 36 weeks of pregnancy. Collect the sample you need after a thorough toilet of the genitals, in a special sterile plastic container (available at the pharmacy).

Analysis of bacteriosia during pregnancy

The analysis on bakposev during pregnancy should be made by every future mother. This procedure is carried out with the purpose of revealing in an organism of the future mother of pathogenic bacteria that can provoke pathological conditions complicating the course of pregnancy. Bakposev is a laboratory method for identifying the causative agent of an infection of an acute and chronic nature. The material is a biological material, taken from a possible source of infection. For bapsoseva use a small amount of mucus, blood, urine, feces or bile, applied to the nutrient medium. If the pathogen is present in the sample, then it falls into favorable conditions for 3-7 days, it forms a colony of bacteria. In addition to isolating the causative agent, it is possible to determine whether the causative agent is sensitive to a particular antimicrobial agent with the help of bacteriosseous.

Most often, pregnant women are prescribed the following bacteriological tests:

  • Backache vaginal swab. It is necessary to exclude diseases of the genitourinary tract, especially dangerous for the life and health of the unborn child.
  • Urine boiling. It is necessary if there is a suspicion of inflammation of the urinary tract.
  • Bakpososev mucus from the nasal cavity to identify Staphylococcus aureus. In the postpartum period, this pathogen can cause severe illness in the baby - purulent skin lesions, tonsillitis, conjunctivitis, etc.

If the analysis on bakposev during pregnancy proves to be positive, then the pregnant woman must necessarily undergo the appropriate treatment and re-pass the analysis until negative results are obtained.
