STD Statistics in Gretna

The number of STD infections in the United States has increased to 19 million in recent history. Though most instances occur in people between the ages of 15 and 24, the implications are still alarming particularly for local communities such as Gretna, Louisiana. The data suggests that syphilis rates in Gretna have decreased markedly with the adoption of medical interventions. Syphilis was once an incurable disease that was directly linked to birth defects, heart difficulties, neurological problems, blindness, mental illness and even death. New cases of gonorrhea are also on the rise in Gretna, Louisiana. Gonorrhea is rarely transmitted through oral sex, but it can be passed through vaginal or anal sex. It can also be transmitted through pregnancy. Using the Center for Disease Control's 2016 STD Surveillance Report for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis and extrapolated using the latest 2011 US Census, it is estimated that 2.8 incidents of syphilis, 119.8 cases of chlamydia and 40.7 cases of gonorrhea, would be attributed to Gretna in 2016.

Acute cases of all types of hepatitis remain consistently low in the Gretna population over the past five years. As is the case with Chlamydia, however, hepatitis often has few or no discernible symptoms. This underscores the importance of ongoing public education and testing for high risk groups, including men having sex with men and intravenous drug users.

Why is testing important?

Because STDs are more common than you may realize, with nearly 20 million new STD cases occurring every year, according to nationwide CDC estimates. Their affects can be quite serious. For instance, HIV infection can progress to AIDS, and gonorrhea, Chlamydia and syphilis can lead to infertility without treatment. These examples show just how important it is that these and other STDs do not go undetected for lack of a simple health test, easily done via STD testing centers near Gretna, LA.

When should you seek STD testing?

Clearly, if you know or suspect that a partner is affected by a sexually transmitted disease, looking into STD testing centers near Gretna, Louisiana is important to protecting your health, as is seeking immediate treatment should you receive positive results. However, STD testing is also essential for all sexually active individuals. That's because STDs don't always come with obvious symptoms. Some may produce no symptoms at all, while others may present mild ones that are easily mistaken for a cold or flu. For this reason, ensuring your sexual and overall health means getting regular screening tests for common STDs. Just how often you should schedule test days depends on your individual circumstances. If in doubt, consult a healthcare professional for an appropriate testing routine for your needs.
