There seems to be a consistent rising trend that is seen on STD statistics every year in the United States and the rest of the world. With the rise of cases of syphilis in men and women, STD statistics just seems to get higher and highter. If it is not syphilis then increasing cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea are also to watch out for.

The problem with STD statistics is that it is likely to be inaccurate. It is very possible that the statistics does not include the undetected cases, for example with chlamydia, because you normally do not exhibit symptoms so you might be aware that you have it. nevertheless the steady rise in the trend whether or not the figures are understated are frightening.

This does not change the fact that there are a lot of people, and the numbers are growing, who are suffering from chlamydia, syphilis and gonorrhea. For instance, in 2007, chlamydia alone infected about a million individuals. That number was apparently higher than it was in the previous year. Moreover, about 350,000 had gonorrhea in that same year. The numbers seem to grow steadily over the last decade.

Those numbers go to show that gonorrhea and chlamydia, by far, are the most wide spread of all STDs. Chlamydia is not hard to diagnose even if the symptoms are not showing. Gonorrhea is also not that hard to diagnose. 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.

Chlamydia rarely leads to complications among man but they can be infected and this disease also cause infertility. Oppositely, gonorrhea in men is even more risky. Not only does this disease put them at risk of infertility but they the infection can make its way to joints and the blood stream. There have been worst cases that end up in fatality.

What does this mean? This suggests that both women and men should be more aware of STDs than ever. Awareness helps people avoid these kinds of diseases as well as informs people of the necessary steps to take if they get these diseases.

As the numbers on the STD statistics rise, so should the peoples need for safety practice. 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. You will also need to see a doctor for screening if your partner has cheated or is cheating. Take note that the statistics will continue to rise until everyone will do their part.
