Reported cases of sexually-transmitted diseases reached an all-time high in Minnesota of nearly 26-thousand in 2015. Chlamydia was by far the most common and saw a seven-percent increase, followed by gonorrhea with a slight increase of one percent. Syphilis cases were up four percent. Krissie Guerard (juh-RARD) with the state Health Department says people who are sexually active need to be tested. She says many STDs don’t have symptoms, so even if a person thinks they don’t have it, they still might. Left untested, STDs can have serious long-term consequences.
