|Postoperative Bacteriuria||Procedure: Straight catheterization Procedure: No straight catheterization||Not Applicable|
The majority of research currently concentrates on indwelling catheters rather than one-time catheterization. Current practice at our institution in the gynecologic operating room is to perform a one time catheterization on patient's undergoing short procedures, yet it is unclear if this is a necessary intervention. If patients are asked to void immediately before their procedure it would eliminate the need for intra-operative catheterization and eliminate a potential source of infection.
The study is designed to determine whether routine catheterization prior to a minor OB/GYN procedure causes symptomatic or asymptomatic bacteria in the urine. Current practice is one-time catheterization of patients undergoing minor OB/GYN procedures prior to the beginning of the procedure. The investigators hypothesize that this causes asymptomatic or symptomatic bacteriuria.

Straight catheterization (control)
The control arm is the current practice at our hospital (to perform straight catheterization for short procedures).
Procedure: Straight catheterization
Patient will receive the current standard practice of straight catheterization intraoperatively.
Active Comparator: No straight catheterization
The experimental arm will void preoperatively and will not be straight catheterized intraoperatively. This is a change from the current practice at our hospital.
Procedure: No straight catheterization
Patients will not be catheterized which is an experimental change from the current practice at our hospital.
- Postoperative Bacteriuria [ Time Frame: 2 -4 weeks ]Urine cultures are obtained preoperatively (baseline), immediately postoperatively and 2 to 4 weeks postoperatively.
- Subjective urinary tract discomfort [ Time Frame: 2-4 weeks postoperatively ]
- Symptomatic urinary tract infection [ Time Frame: 2-4 weeks ]
