Data released today from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show a record high in STD diagnoses, with 2.3 million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis diagnosed in 2017. The increase in STD diagnoses is attributed to a lack of federal funding for state public health programs, as well as an increase in drug abuse, and socioeconomic problems. ___ The CDC compared their data from 2017 to data collected in 2013 and is as follows: - Gonorrhea rose by 67% overall, doubling among men and showing a "concerning" increase in women for the third year in a row. - Primary and secondary syphilis rose 76%, almost 70% of which are cases among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. - Chlamydia rose by 21.9% and remains the most common condition. 45% were diagnosed in 15- to 24-year-olds. ___ These STDs can be cured with antibiotics, however untreated cases are causing serious health issues like infertility, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth in infants and higher risk of HIV infection.: HEALTH STD RECORD HIGH IN U.S Aug 28 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report the U.S. hit a record high of STD diagnoses in 2017, and the numbers continue to rise sharply.

pervocracy: I feel like there’s a lot of infographics out there about STI prevention, but not enough about what happens if you already have one.  (The answer is not “you give up because your life is over.”)  So here, have some education!

Yes Chlamydia Antibiotics azithromycin, doxycycline, erythromycin, levofloxacin or ofloxacin Gonorrhea Yes Antibiotics usually ceftriaxone and azithromycin but antibiotic resistance is increasing Hepatitis B 3 No Antiviral drugs and but most people will recover on their own; about 5% become chronically infected immune modulators tenofovir, entecavir, PEGylated interferon Hepatitis C So Sometimes cure rates are not 100% but a cure is possible Antiviral drugs drug choice depends on specific genotype of virus Herpes 0 but outbreaks usually reduce in severity/frequency over time (even without treatment) Antiviral drugs acyclovir, valacyclovir, and famciclovir Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) many different drug "cocktails" HIV/AIDS No but treatment greatly extends life expectancy (up to 50 years after diagnosis) No but most people will recover on their own; cancer screening is important Yes HPV None but genital warts can be removed Pubic Lice Topical treatment permethrin or pyrethrins with piperonyl butoxide Antibiotics penicillin, doxycycline, tetracycline Syphilis Yes Trichomoniasis Yes Antiparasitic medication metronidazole pervocracy: I feel like there’s a lot of infographics out there about STI prevention, but not enough about what happens if you already have one.  (The answer is not “you give up because your life is over.”)  So here, have some education!

U ever start dating someone and they listen to your genre of music and u all excited about it but then they like the wrong shit and now u annoyed u ever brought up music in the first place 🤔. Like if I'm talking to a older grown and sexy Caucasian woman and she got a tribal tramp stamp and she like Nickelback I'm not gonna hold it against her pretty ass Bruh. The horrendous rock - tattoo taste is indicative of a dark past and I happen to like ladies with a dark past - just like pets who came from bad circumstances, I find women with more issues than Time Magazine easier to love 😍. (Side note: this type of woman is brutally honest, which I also love. Like I'm all "ayeee...u ever test positive for anything?" And she just like "yeah, gonorrhea, once, in 2007 😣. I went back stage at an Aerosmith show, got drunk, and banged Steven Tyler smh. Nothing some antibiotics couldn't fix ☺️." And I'm just like, to myself "WOW!!!! Do u also dumpster dive and play roulette with the first needle u see by jamming it in your thigh just to see what happen?! You bold AF, grown and sexy Caucasian woman!" 😂) Nah but u ain't gon discuss music with this chick. It's safe to say we gon spend the night talmbout Trump. But see sometimes the convo is more difficult. I'm like aye what u listen to, she like "rap ☺️" and I'm like "oh word? 😀" And she like "Drake, Gucci, Future, 21" and I'm like "take me to flavor town mama 😍" and then she all "G Eazy, Big Sean" and I'm all "this date was going great. It really was. I know in one week you gon text me like 'WELL I THOUGHT THE DATE WENT WELL SORRY I'M NOT UP TO YOUR STANDARD'" and imma have to reply and apologize but deep down I ain't sorry at all. If u a lil hipster who love Pinegrove and Weyes Blood we might could build a future. But if I ever have to come downstairs to enjoy pancakes with u and our 11 chirren and I hear "Last night took a L, but tonight I bounce back!", I might just say I'm going to Whole Foods for orange juice, get in the minivan, drive away, and never come back. Don't worry baby. Kids will be fine. I'll come back for the Princeton graduations, and NFL draft day 😘 GoodbyeForeverMyLove 😂😂😂: Don't talk to me or my son ever again DrSmashlove U ever start dating someone and they listen to your genre of music and u all excited about it but then they like the wrong shit and now u annoyed u ever brought up music in the first place 🤔.

As if you needed more of a reason to stay away from “the clap.” This sexually transmitted infection is caused by a bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which is capable of pulling 100,000 times its own body weight. That would be like a human dragging a 22 million pound (10 million kilo) weight around. Gonorrhea can be carried by a person without them knowing it (so get tested, y’all) and if it isn’t treated, it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and weaken the heart valves and joints in the long run. Fun (we’re being generous here) fact: Gonorrhea is also referred to as “the drip” because, well… You know what? We’ll let you put two and two together on the reason as to why. It’s as terrible as you think. Thanks to @Facts for letting us know about this super gnarly fact. Make sure to give them a follow!: As if you needed more of a reason to stay away from “the clap.” This sexually transmitted infection is caused by a bacteria called Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which is capable of pulling 100,000 times its own body weight.
