Each year about 20 million new sexually transmitted disease (STD) infections in the U.S. are diagnosed. Almost half of them are among young people between 15 to 24 years of age, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In McHenry County 642 cases of Chlamydia, 32 cases of gonorrhea, and 5 cases of syphilis were reported in 2015, along with 131 people living with HIV. Chlamydia is the most frequently reported STD and is known as “the silent infection because the majority of men and women experience no symptoms. Of the 642 Chlamydia cases reported in McHenry County, 67% of these cases were in the 15 to 24 year old population.

There are effective ways to diagnose and easily treat STD infections. Testing and knowledge of infection are vital to reducing the consequences of these diseases. Chlamydia and gonorrhea – the two most commonly reported infectious diseases in the U.S. – are also among the most serious and preventable threats to women’s fertility.
