STD Rate Increases
Rates of sexually transmitted diseases, or STD’s, are increasing -- especially among some groups.
A new report from the centers for disease control finds Chlamydia infections increased eight percent from 2010 to 2011. Reported Gonorrhea infections rose four percent.
Young adults and gay and bisexual men were particularly affected.
Both sexually transmitted diseases can lead to serious health problems, like infertility in women, if left untreated.
