Read This if You Have Multiple Partners
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. Part of the STD statistics is the rise in cases of chlamydia, as well as gonorrhea.
There may also be a problem as far as STD statistics is concerned. 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.
The STD statistics then shows that many people around you may be suffering from either 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. At the same time, there were 350000 diagnosed with gonorrhea in 2007. There seems to be more people getting diagnosed with STD year after year.
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, 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. Women may see more complications like ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain.
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. Aside from the risk of infertility, the infection could spread to the blood or to the joints. There have been worst cases that end up in fatality.
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 is the key to avoiding STDs and knowing what to do if you get it.
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. It also helps to learn how to properly use a condom.
Moreover, people should also get themselves checked when they have a new partner. 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.
