Lactobacillus crispatus, found in high proportions in the healthy vagina, had no effects. To determine the frequency of colonization of Escherichia coli in female patients, the role of the bacterium in the vaginal ecology likes probable cause of clinical manifestations and to recognize the associate's factors of risk with its vaginal colonization.

Overall Escherichia coli was isolated from 95 However, Gardnerella vaginalis, which can cause problems in the reproductive tract when it grows excessively, damaged the cells lining the bladder and activated the dormant E.
