STDs Related To Fertility

Are At All Time High

Rates of sexually transmitted diseases are at all times high and this affects fertility

STDs are on the rise and this affects your fertility.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) often seem harmless to one’s health because most STDs do not have obvious symptoms. However, if left untreated, these diseases can affect your fertility and can lead to infertility and/or pregnancy complications.

Take this short fertility test to assess your pregnancy potential and to better understand how to enhance your fertility. It will give you valuable information about yourself.

According to the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report recently released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were reported in the United States in 2016 – the highest number ever. The majority of those cases were of chlamydia (1.6 million), 470,000 cases were for gonorrhea, and 28,000 cases were of primary and secondary syphilis (the most infectious stages of the disease).

The CDC report indicates that certain groups have a higher probability of getting those STDs. Chlamydia burden was greatest in young women. Gonorrhea increased the steepest in men. Syphilis cases occurred mainly in men, especially gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM)

All three of those STDs can be cured with antibiotics. When left untreated or undiagnosed, they can have serious health consequences that range from long-term pelvic pain to infertility to pregnancy complications.

To prevent catching or spreading a STD, it is important to get tested regularly and rapidly and to get immediate treatment. Practicing safe sex is important to one’s long-term fertility potential as well as overall health.
