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 the it is Chlamydia and gonorrhea that contributes a big part in the STD statistics as well.
Speaking about STD statistics, there is one thing to consider. That is because STDs like chlamydia, which is very common, can be hard to detect because the infected person rarely shows symptoms. nevertheless the steady rise in the trend whether or not the figures are understated are frightening.
The STD statistics then shows that many people around you may be suffering from either gonorrhea, chlamydia or syphilis. 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.
The STD statistics also show that the most common among STDS is chlamydia and gonorrhea. Though chlamydia rarely shows symptoms, it is easy to detect. Gonorrhea, like chlamydia is also easy to be medically identified. The amazing news is that there is a cure for these two diseases especially when they are diagnosed early. If these diseases are not cured it can lead to other health issues like in women, PID or pelvic inflammatory disease and possibly infertility in both men and women. A women who has untreated STD is at high risk of developing chronic pelvic pain and suffering ectopic pregnancy.
Although men suffer from chlamydia less, this does not mean that they can’t be affected by complications. Oppositely, gonorrhea in men is even more risky. if left untreated, it can lead to infertility or it can travel to the blood stream and the joints. Gonorrhea can be fatal in men.
What is this trying to tell us. This mean that men and women alike should become more aware about the risks that these STDs carry. 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 STD statistics show increase in the number of these cases, the more should people should practice safetly. The statistics is basically a reminder that it is better to monogamous as much as possible or avoid having multiple partners. One should also learn how to correctly use protection.
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. if people help each other become more aware, the STD statistics will stop rising.
