Urinary tract infection particularly lower urinary tract infection is one such disease, the frequency of which is only second to upper respiratory tract infection, but the incidence and degree of morbidity and mortality is greater than those of upper respiratory tract infections. According to WHO report, puerperal infections (including UTI) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality for mothers in developing nations. During pregnancy and puerperium, the symptomatic infections constitute most number of visits to obstetricians and are the most common bacterial infections during pregnancy. The symptoms of Lower urinary tract infections are nearer to those of Mootrakrichhra but it has not been described among Garbhini & Sootika Vyadhis. So, in the present study Mootrakrichhra has been tried to study w.s.r. to Lower urinary tract infection following the principle given by Acharya Charaka. So, for this study two groups were selected:- one with Brihat Dhatryadi Ghanavati and other with placebo. The improvement was statistically significant in Brihat Dhatryadi Ghanavati as compared to placebo group.
