Sexually Transmitted Infections Reach All-Time High in US

Results from the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) surveillance report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that the rates of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis — the three most commonly reported STIs in the nation — reached an all-time high between 2014 and 2015, according to FIU News. Young people are most at risk of STDs, the report added.

The most commonly reported sexually transmitted infection, chlamydia, has been rising for years, with the CDC reporting 1,441,789 cases of it in 2014 alone. Two-thirds of these cases were in 15- to 24-year-olds.

Women are more likely to be diagnosed with chlamydia, but men can be infected with it as well. Physicians usually prescribe antibiotics to chlamydia patients given that it’s caused by bacteria, but there are other ways to help treat it, for example, supplementing with probiotics after your antibiotics, and taking goldenseal, Echinacea or garlic.

Human papilloma virus (HPV) is a sexually-transmitted disease as well, but beware of the CDC’s “prevention” plan for it: The HPV vaccine recently was outed for causing a higher risk for non-vaccine strains to occur, if you take the vaccine. Also, the vaccine doesn’t even work if you’re already positive for any of the strains in it.

There are also suspicions that Gardasil HPV vaccine might actually paradoxically increase your risk of cervical cancer if you are actively infected at the time of vaccination. This pre-licensure information came straight from Merck and was presented to the FDA prior to approval.
