Thanks for posting your query.

During intercourse, there occur small vaginal lacerations and these are more susceptible to infections. Klebsiella pneumoniae rarely causes vaginitis.

It is mainly responsible for UTI. Therefore, you may have asymptomatic UTI. It is not XXXXXXX can be treated and cured completely.

Consult your Gynecologist & carry out Urine investigations like Urine routine & urine culture sensitivity.

Please do write back for follow up queries that you may have.

Take care
