STD statistics show that there has been a steady rise of such cases not only in the United States but across the globe.

Women may see more complications like ectopic pregnancy and chronic pelvic pain.
On the other hand, men can contract either gonorrhea or chlamydia but the former rarely affects men. Oppositely, gonorrhea poses more health risks among. Aside from the risk of infertility, the infection could spread to the blood or to the joints. There have been worst cases that end up in fatality.
