STDs are Scary So Read This
STD statistics show that there has been a steady rise of such cases not only in the United States but across the globe. To be more specific the rise in syphilis among men and women are big contributors to this trend. If it is not syphilis then increasing cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea are also to watch out for.
There may also be a problem as far as STD statistics is concerned. That is because STDs like chlamydia, which is very common, can be hard to detect because the infected person rarely shows symptoms. Needless to say the rise in the numbers are still alarming.
One the other hand, there is a high percent of people who have gonorrhea, Chlamydia or syphilis. For instance, ten years ago in the united States, there were more or less a million people documented to be suffering from Chlamydia. That number was apparently higher than it was in the previous year. meanwhile 350000 men and women had gonorrhea in 2007. The number appears to grow higher each year.
Simply put, the statistics shows that the most common STDs are gonorrhea and chlamydia. Chlamydia may not easily manifest symptoms but can diagnosed easily. Gonorrhea, like chlamydia is also easy to be medically identified. The good thing is that these two diseases are curable especially after being detected early. There is a chance that these two STDs can lead to problems like infertility or PID in women if left untreated. In women, these STDs can also lead to health issues like pelvic pain or ectopic pregnancy.
Although men suffer from chlamydia less, this does not mean that they can’t be affected by complications. Meanwhile, gonorrhea can lead to very serious complications in men. if left untreated, it can lead to infertility or it can travel to the blood stream and the joints. In worst cases it can lead to death.
What does this mean? This suggests that both women and men should be more aware of STDs than ever. The key to avoiding the spread of STD is awareness and at the same time it also help you know what steps you need to do if you get infected.
With the heightened cases of STDs, more and more people should choose to exercise safety. The statistics is a subtle reminder that there is a big risk of STDs when you have multiple partners. The right use of latex can also help avoid the spread of these diseases.
Get your self checked if you have someone new in your life. For cases where your partner is having an affair, it is better to get screened. Take note that the statistics will continue to rise until everyone will do their part.
