STDs are Scary So Read This
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. The increase of syphilis cases among men and women alike form a huge part of this alarming trend. 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. 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. Still, the growing numbers are frightening even if at times the numbers are understated.
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 example there was one year in the United States where there were about a million people who have been diagnosed with Chlamydia. That number was obviously higher than the one that was recorded a year ago. meanwhile 350000 men and women had gonorrhea in 2007. There seems to be more people getting diagnosed with STD year after year.
Simply put, the statistics shows that the most common STDs are gonorrhea and chlamydia. Though chlamydia rarely shows symptoms, it is easy to detect. The same is true with gonorrhea. The good news is that when diagnosed early, they can be treated. 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.
On the other hand, men can contract either gonorrhea or chlamydia but the former rarely affects men. Meanwhile, gonorrhea can lead to very serious complications in men. 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 is this trying to tell us. This goes to show that awareness about STDs should be increased. 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 statistic simple try to tell people to as much as possible avoid having multiple partners. It also helps to learn how to properly use a condom.
Get your self checked if you have someone new in your life. And if your partner had been cheating, get yourself screened as well. if people help each other become more aware, the STD statistics will stop rising.
