In newly released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it shows that the rate of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) continues to rise in Washington, and across the country. The data reveals over 115,000 syphilis cases in that time period and over 580,000 cases of gonorrhea, neither of which have seen levels this high since 1991.

Primary and secondary syphilis cases are the most infectious stages.

We finally broke out of the top 5 in cases of Primary Secondary Syphilis. Amid record STD rates, doctors treat patients' partner's sight unseen Amid record STD rates, doctors treat patients' partner's sight unseen A rise within the prevalence and incidence of STDs will come with serious public health consequences and considerations, as well as sterility, drug-resistant social disease, and non-heritable syphilis, which may cause crib death.

Cases of chlamydia reached 1.75 million in 2017, the most ever.

When to Get a Flu Shot 2019, According to a Doctor
Chow says anyone who's had Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS, a severe paralyzing illness), may not want to get the shot. The CDC surveyed almost 2,100 women ages 18 to 49 who were pregnant any time between August 2018 and April 2019.

Pregnant women reportedly experience some of the worst outcomes from untreated STDs, including from congenital syphilis, which the Washington State Department of Health says is a growing problem in Washington. HIV and STDs are still best prevented through consistent and correct condom use, reduction of the number of sex partners or monogamy and knowing the testing status of sex partners and choosing safer sex practices based on the partner's status.

According to the CDC, half of all new STD cases each year are estimated to be contracted by young people between the ages of 15 and 24.

On the list of cases of Chlamydia by state at the CDC website, Louisiana ranked number 2 out of all states. "Most people infected with an STD do not know it". Combine that with risk factors such as drug use and poverty, as well as reductions in STD awareness programs at both the state and local levels across the U.S., and you have a recipe for record-breaking STD numbers.

According to The Hill, the National Coalition of STD Directors has urged Congress to increase funding for STI prevention services by $70 million, saying it would be the "bare minimum" for CDC to support an effective response to the current STI outbreak.
