Sexually transmitted diseases are a serious problem that millions of people in the United States are currently dealing with. There are several common sexually transmitted diseases. Some of the most common STD’s in the United States include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis. Unfortunately, these diseases are even more common in certain parts of the country. Hawaii is a state that happens to have the highest rate of known cases of Chlamydia. On the other hand, Gonorrhea is most common in the state of Mississippi and Syphilis is most common in the state of Louisiana.

These sexually transmitted diseases can often cause serious complications, infertility, and can ultimately lead to death if they are not treated by a medical profession. These sexually transmitted diseases are often passed from one person to another via unprotected sexual intercourse. The diseases are also most common amongst African Americans and teenagers. It is for that reason that it is genuinely important for people to get tested regularly and to use protection.
