EFFECT OF POLLUTED WELL WATER BY BACTERIA E. COLI TO URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN PREGNANT WOMENYOHANES AGUS SETIANTO, HARTONO, TOTOK GUNAWAN AND EVI GRAVITIANI
Well water Pollution has occurred in the city of Yogyakarta, 46% of them are polluted by E-coli bacteria. In the research journal written by KY Loh and Friends in 2007 states that 10% of pregnant women experience pain and 90% of urinary tract infections (UTI) is caused by bacteria E coli. Means that most UTI in pregnant women are caused by E coli bacteria. From this phenomenon, this study wants to prove there is a relationship between well water Pollution by E coli bacteria and UTI disease of pregnant women who use well water contaminated with E coli bacteria, and how big the relationship is. This research method uses etiological analytic observational design with the Prospective Cohort approach and hypothesis testing using categorical comparative. With the chi square statistical test continued to the fisher test results obtained p value = 0.011 and alpha = 0. 05. Thus the value of p < alpha, which means there is a relationship between the quality of water used with UTI sick pregnant women. The other result is Relative UTI RISK (RR) = 5.4 with 95% converting interval. For the detailed results of the RR significance of 1.441 <= RR <= 20.236 that does not exceed 1, which means that there is a meaningful relationship between pregnant women who use contaminated water quality will be affected by UTI . From the analysis of UTI risk estimation (RR) of = 5.4 with a confidence level of 95%, it can be concluded that pregnant women who use well water contaminated with E coli bacteria will be 5 times more likely to be exposed to the UTI risk of UTI compared to pregnant women who use well water not contaminated with E coli bacteria.
