Urinary tract infection UTI(s) is one of the most common types of infection in young women and is a public sanitary problem of many countries. It is estimated that 20-30 percent of women with a first UTI will have recurrent infection. The incidence is mostly in young women, and the disease can not be explained by underlying functional or anatomical abnormalities. So many researchers have focused on the habits, behavioral or genetic factors. Therefore, inorder to evaluate the individual factors predisposing to UTI(s) in married Women, a case- control study was carried out, and data wase gathered through questionnaires. Selected through a continuous sampling method, 400 women between the age of 14-45 were the contributers of this study. Through which, 200, belonged to the case group, and the rest were considered as the control group. As a result, meaningful statistically relationships were found between history of UTI diagnosis (P=0.001), and also previous use of antibiotics within 15-30 days prior entering the study (P=0.003) with the existed UTI. Overall, considering that the previous UTI diagnosis, and also usage of antibiotics were found to be the predisposing factors, it is recommended to list them as health teaching issues by the authorities, furthermore, other studies should be conducted to reveal the factors which cause first and recurrent UTI(s) separately. A prospective cohort study, by record information about individual predisposing factors in daily diaries is suggested.
