So what are the most sexually diseased cities in America? Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) also go by name sexually transmitted infections (STI). They are transmitted by sexual intercourse and can be really dangerous. The STI term is being more in use recently because it has a broader meaning. People can carry on the virus that causes the disease, but they may not have to develop symptoms of the disease. But you probably already know all of this. What you don’t know is how fast the sexually transmitted infections spread.Speaking of America, let’s check out the statistics for the United States when it comes to STDs. There is no doubt that the number of sexually transmitted diseases is on the rise. Out of those 110 million, around 50.5 million men have some type of STD and 59.5 million women share their misfortune. 50% of the new infections happen to those between 15 and 24 years old.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three cities from their list.
Indianapolis, Indiana (Total STDs: 12,608; Total STDs per 100,000: 1371.96) In this city with a population close to million people, there were 9,282 cases of chlamydia and 3,191 cases of gonorrhea reported. The number of those having a syphilis infection is 135. Jackson, Minnesota is the second (Total STDs: 3453; Total STDs per 100,000: 1388.738). Moving on to the state of Minnesota. In the city of Jackson, there were 2,390 cases of chlamydia, 1,042 cases of gonorrhea and 21 cases of syphilis infection. Jackson is the most sexually diseased city in the state considering 1388.738 STDs per 100,000 population rate. At last, but not least we are mentioning Amarillo, Texas. (Total STDs: 1,701, Total STDs per 100,000: 1390.444) Out of 120,000 people living in Amarillo, 2 persons have syphilis, while 446 of them suffer from gonorrhea.
