U.S. STD's record-high: antibiotic-proof gonorrhea skyrockets

Recommended Posts



The number of people infected with sexually transmitted diseases is up by more than 200 thousand since last year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Nearly 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017. That’s 200,000 more cases than were diagnosed in 2016. 

Chlamydia remains by far the most common STD in the U.S., with more than 1.7 million cases diagnosed last year. But increases in syphilis diagnoses have been particularly dramatic. Rates have risen by 76% (from around 17,400 cases to more than 30,600 cases) since 2013, according to the CDC. Gonorrhea cases that were reported to the CDC increased by nearly 67%. 

There is the concern about antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea that's been seen nationwide. If gonorrhea becomes resistant to all combinations of antibiotic therapies, it could become an untreatable STD.
