Table 5 The values of gene copies/ml of positive cases of C. trachomatis (CT), N. gonorrhoeae (NG), M. genitalium (MG), U. urealyticum/parvum (U. Urea/Parv), G. vaginalis (GV), T. vaginalis (TV) and herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1/2 in ectopic pregnancy (EP) and control (total abdominal hysterectomy and tubal ligation) groups according to single and co-infections (n = number of positive cases and ND = Not detected)
