STD statistics show that there has been a steady rise of such cases not only in the United States but across the globe. 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.

One the other hand, there is a high percent of people who have 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 obviously higher than the one that was recorded a year ago. 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.
Simply put, the statistics shows that the most common STDs are gonorrhea and chlamydia. Chlamydia is not hard to diagnose even if the symptoms are not showing. The same is true with gonorrhea.

There is a chance that these two STDs can lead to problems like infertility or PID in women if left untreated. A women who has untreated STD is at high risk of developing chronic pelvic pain and suffering ectopic pregnancy.
Chlamydia rarely leads to complications among man but they can be infected and this disease also cause infertility. 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. In worst cases it can lead to death.
What does this mean? This mean that men and women alike should become more aware about the risks that these STDs carry. The key to avoiding the spread of STD is awareness and at the same time it also help you know what steps you need to do if you get infected.
With the heightened cases of STDs, more and more people should choose to exercise safety. The statistics is basically a reminder that it is better to monogamous as much as possible or avoid having 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. 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.
