Abstract

The present study demonstrates the existence of various compounds which are secreted by E. coli and could also be extracted out of E. coli bacteria. These bacterial compounds modulate ovarian steroidogenesis. Further studies are needed to clarify how far these compounds contribute to menstrual disturbance observed in chronic pelvic inflammation.
