Recently released figures from the CDC have shown that the STI problem is certainly not going away.

1.9 million new cases of HIV, worldwide is a shocking number that needs to be significantly reduced. The simplest measure is to use protection but even medication (Pre Exposure Prophylaxis/PrEP)  (Post Exposure Prophylaxis/PEP) can be a powerful tool in the prevention of HIV spread.

Rates of the most common STDs such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and syphilis are also all increasing due to reduced use of protection, failed detection and failed treatment.


Even more worryingly, The World Health Organisation has warned of increasing resistance to antibiotics, particularly regarding gonorrhoea. The emergence of ‘Super Gonorrhoea” is concerning indeed.

If there is anything to take away from this it is to always use protection during sexual intercourse and get yourself regularly undergo an HIV screen in case no symptoms show up.
