Lower urinary tract infection (UTIs) is very common diseases that occur in at least 60% of women. UTIs are caused by microorganisms, commonly Gram negative bacteria. Escherichia coli (E.coli) play role a most cases. Recurrent urinary tract infection is very challenging because the main treatment is long term antibiotic. Another way to avoid this risk is by using Nigella sativa Linn. Nigella sativa Linn. is regarded as one of the greatest healing medicine in Islam. The aqueous and oil extracts of the seeds have been shown to possess antitumor, anti-diabetic, cardiovascular activity, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antimicrobial activities. Crude extracts of Nigella sativa Linn. were tested for antimicrobial activity against bacterial isolates.
