More than 1.7 million cases of chlamydia (kluh-MID'-ee-uh) were reported last year. The infection rate rose 3 percent from 2017.
It's the most ever reported in a year, though the trend is mainly attributed to increased testing.
About 580,000 gonorrhea (gah-nuh-REE'-uh) cases were reported. That's the highest number since 1991. The rate rose 5 percent. Scientists worry antibiotic resistance may be a factor.
And the syphilis rate rose 15 percent. About 35,000 cases of the most contagious forms of the disease were reported — also the most since 1991.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the numbers Tuesday.
The increases coincided with public health funding cuts and clinic closures
