Mississippi Leads the Nation in STD’s

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi leads the nation in cases of gonorrhea and has the third-highest incidence of chlamydia and syphilis according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. STDs are at an all-time high nationwide, but chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhea are treatable with antibiotics and penicillin.

  2. Let’s see the statistics by demographic.

  3. Many organizations present STD transmission rates using stats in slightly different ways. Mississippi is certainly at or near the top of the list, state-wise – Alaska and Louisiana are also at the top.
    All STDs are on the rise. Most are preventable or treatable. Many do not know that have a STD. There are several stages of syphilis – active, latent, congenital, etc. Congenital syphilis accounts for many new cases across the USA. Babies in the womb are at risk of syphilis infection (transmitted through the placenta), or when passing through the birth canal.

    TESTING IS THE ONLY WAY to know for sure if one has any of the STDs.

    And gonorrhea is one STD which is becoming virtually untreatable, due to antibiotic resistance.
    Hepatitis B is also sexually transmitted.
