STD rates on the rise; health officials urge testing

Sexually-transmitted diseases are on the rise in California, according to the department of public health, and officials are urging residents to take preventative measures and get tested.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the most commonly reported STDs in California. They often cause no symptoms, but tests and treatment that can lead to a cure are available. If not treated, chlamydia and gonorrhea can lead to reproductive issues like pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.

In Santa Barbara County, 2,292 cases were reported, up just slightly from 2,291 cases in 2016.

State health officials say chlamydia rates are 60 percent higher among females than males and 54 percent of recent cases were among people under the age of 25.
