CDC sees sharp increase in 3 STDs reported in 2017

The CDC also says that STD rates are on the rise

Rates of three STDs in US reach record high, CDC says

THE WRONG DIRECTION. According to the CDC, the US saw just under 2.3 million people diagnosed with syphilis, gonorrhea, or chlamydia in 2017.

"After decades of declining STDs, in recent years we've been sliding backwards", Bolan said.

Public health officials in England this year reported a man contracted gonorrhea that resisted the commonly prescribed drug combination of ceftriaxone and azithromycin.

Gail Bolan, director of the Division of STD Prevention at the CDC, called the rise "very concerning".

The three highlighted diseases are treatable, but the report said most go undiagnosed, which can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth and an increased HIV risk.

It's interesting to note that most of the new STD cases affect people between the ages of 15 and 24, which makes them more likely to be exposed to abstinence-only campaigns.

Syphilis can be treated with antibiotics.

There's not enough screening for sexually transmitted diseases, particularly among young people who are most vulnerable, Harvey said.

CDC funding for prevention efforts has hovered around $157 million for the past 18 years, Harvey said.

The health department clinics give out free safe-sex items and have locations in Greene, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson counties.

Doctors have found success in treating gonorrhea with the antibiotic Ceftriaxone. But while the CDC shared the data, it didn't reveal why STDs seem to be increasing so much, and at such a fast rate. While she added that there has never been a "confirmed treatment failure" when using this recommended treatment, the worry is there may eventually be a strain of gonorrhea that does not respond to ceftriaxone.

"They realize that their sites could be stigmatized for being associated with STDs".
