  • Reported STDs Reach Record High in California

Gonorrhea is one of the most commonly reported STDs in the United States, with more cases than syphilis but fewer cases than chlamydia. The cases of syphilis and gonorrhoea are more common among men.

California is in the midst of a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) epidemic, and it's so bad that the number of stillbirths due to syphilis has reached a 20-year high, U.S. News & World Report is reporting. In total, there were 75,560 cases in 2017, representing a 16 percent increase from the year before, making the rate 190.5 cases per 100,000 Californians. There were 30 in 2017, California's highest number since 1995.

CDPH Director and State Public Health Officer Karen Smith said that STDs can be prevented by consistent use of condoms. Many people with STD do not know they have it.

Chlamydia can be transmitted by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex, affecting both men and women. According to the CDC, most people with chlamydia don't have symptoms, or those symptoms may not appear for several weeks.
