For the fourth year in a row, STD rates in the United States are on the rise (i.e. if you feel like you’ve heard this before, you have). In 2017, nearly 2.3 million sexually transmitted diseases were diagnosed, which marks an increase over 2016’s then-record high by more than 200,000 cases. These numbers refer specifically to cases of chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea, each of which pose significant risk factors for those infected. Though this annual increase in STD rates is not new to this year, it does mark part of a troubling overall trend upward, the CDC says, announcing these findings at the National STD Prevention Conference on Tuesday.
