Thanks for writing to us.
Recurrence of klebsiella infection during pregnancy is indicative of an incomplete treatment and predisposes you to preterm labour. You need to get the culture sensitivity test done to detect the antibiotic best for you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
