STD Trends in the USA

The 2009 STD surveillance data has been published by the CDC.  There has been positive progress in several areas including:

  • The lowest national Gonorrhea rate ever
  • The increase in Chlamydia screening
  • The fact that the national rate for Syphilis has not increased among women for the first time in 5 years!

There are still several things that need to be focused on, but most importantly screening.  According to the CDC less than half of people who should be screened are being screened.  Early detections can prevent all kinds of side effects including infertility, and can lower your risk on contracting HIV. CTK has superior rapid tests and strips for just that!

Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Syphilis are treatable if detected early.  Check out our TESTS for the best early detection options!
