Straight or gay, married or single, you’re vulnerable to STIs and STI symptoms. Thinking or hoping your partner doesn’t have an STI is no protection — you need to know for sure.

The risk of STDs/STIs is particularly high among sexually active adolescents and young adults. As an example, in the United States, the rate of reported cases of chlamydia among women are highest among ages 20 to 24, followed by ages 15 to 19. In 2018, the incidence of chlamydia in these age brackets was 4,064 and 3,306 cases per 100,000 persons, respectively, compared with the total incidence of 540 cases per 100,000 persons.

How Do You Know You Have an STD?

 

Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘How Do You Know You Have an STD?’

Five (5) of the top ten (10) reportable diseases in the United States are STDs. Data from the CDC indicates that in 2017, in the United States, a combined total of more than 2.2 million new cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis were reported.

The global incidence of four curable sexually transmitted diseases (chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis) is estimated at over 357 million cases. Many cases go undiagnosed and untreated.

Screening is an important approach to identify and treat infected individuals, who would otherwise go undetected. Risk assessment through routine sexual histories is important to appropriately target at-risk individuals for STI screening. This includes assessment for risk factors that place individuals at increased risk for STI, such as current or past history of STI or a history of multiple sex partners.

In addition to specific behavioral risk factors, demographic factors (“risk groups”) that are associated with high prevalence of STIs also be assessed.
