The findings from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) show significant spikes in common STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia between 2000 and 2017 (chlamydia rates rose 9% compared to 2016, reaching an all-time high among both males and females, while gonorrhea infections rose 16% from 2016).

Rates of sexually transmitted diseases in California reached a record high previous year and, state health authorities said Monday.

The figure that caused the greatest alarm for researchers and administrators was 30 stillbirths resulting from congenital syphilis statewide - the highest number reported since 1995, the CDPH said.

In terms of which STD Butte County has the most of, that answer is Chlamydia.

The data, which was compiled by the California Department of Public Health, revealed chlamydia and gonorrhea to be most rampant among people under 30, with rates of chlamydia highest among young women. Chlamydia rates among girls and women were 60 percent higher than boys and men. "Seeing it come back like this is a sign of failure of the public health safety net", Dr. Jeffery Klausner, a professor of medicine of the University of California, Los Angeles, told the Associated Press.

In California, 75,450 gonorrhea cases were reported in 2017, marking it the highest number since 1988.

Thirty-three percent of gonorrhea cases in California were in people under age 25.

'We've known how to control syphilis since early 1900s. It can occur after direct contact with a syphilis sore during sexual intercourse. Additionally, an infected mother can spread syphilis to her unborn baby.

Another 278 babies were born with the infection, which can cause severe health problems including premature birth, low birth weight, birth defects, blindness and hearing loss.

Officials blame lack of STD awareness, decreasing number of clinics and less frequent condom usage for the rates, the L.A. Times reported. Officials with the San Francisco Department of Public Health believe recent advances in HIV prevention drugs may have led to an increase in unprotected sex in some communities, possibly increasing STD rates.
