Reported Sexually Transmitted Diseases Reach a New High in California

Reported cases of sexually transmitted diseases reached a new high in California in 2017, health officials announced on Monday.

According to the CDPH, reported cases of chlamydia rose nine percent since 2016 and affected more women than men by about 60 percent.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea rates are highest among people under age 30.

The increase in the number of infections is due to several factors such as lack of education, decrease in the usage of condom and les number of STD clinics.

STDs can cause a number of serious health problems.

The most reported sexually transmitted bacterial infections in the state, chlamydia and gonorrhea typically don't have symptoms but can cause problems including pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility, according to CDPH.

Therefore, in order to educate people and spread awareness about the alarming risks of STD, the health officials are now working with schools, community groups as well as youth organisations across California. Officials say regular STD testing is important because most people who are infected don't know it. Los Angeles County alone saw congenital syphilis cases jump from eight in 2013 to 47 previous year.

The state recorded the highest number of chlamydia cases since reporting started in 1990, the agency said. Young women suffer the most with chlamydia. More than half were reported among individuals under 25. This is up significantly from a year ago when 1,805 cases were reported. With 13,605 recorded cases, early syphilis reached its highest rate since 1987.

In Los Angeles County, gonorrhea cases more than doubled since 2013. Being diagnosed with syphilis during pregnancy can also put the unborn baby at risk of having a low birth weight, being delivered early or death (stillbirth).

The figure that caused the greatest alarm for researchers and administrators was 30 stillbirths resulting from congenital syphilis statewide - the highest number reported since 1995, the CDPH said. On the other hand, syphilis can lead to neurologic issues, loss of hearing and blindness.
