In recent years, West Monroe, LA data have echoed the trends occurring throughout the state for two serious sexually transmitted diseases, Chlamydia and gonorrhea. This is concerning, since both diseases can lead to infertility in women and serious health problems in both sexes. As the data indicate, syphilis, an incurable sexually transmitted disease has only affected a minuscule percentage of West Monroe's population in recent years. Fortunately, if treated in its early stages, frightening results such as neurological problems, blindness, mental illness and even death can be avoided. As the West Monroe data corroborate, women are much more likely to contract genital herpes than are men. On the national level, 21 percent of women and 11 percent of men were reported by the Centers for Disease Control to have HSV-2, the most common form of genital herpes. Perhaps due to the ongoing public education campaign regarding AIDS and HIV, 2011 data of reported cases show that this disease remains at a very low incidence in the overall population of West Monroe and the state as a whole. Nevertheless, the fact that other STD transmission rates remain high suggests that the behaviors that spread them could also lead to the transmission of AIDS and HIV.
