Heterosexual women up by 74%

There has recently been an alarming increase in gonorrhoea cases in Perth especially in the 20-39 year old age group. Cases in the Perth and Southwest areas have more than tripled in the last five years, and increased by 53% in the past 12 months. The biggest increases in cases have been in heterosexual women (74%) and men (53%) as well as men who have sex with men (23%).

If it ain't on ... it ain't on! ®





Below is a list of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and other conditions associated with STIs. Some of these conditions are not sexually transmitted but may increase in frequency with sexual activity.  Some are conditions caused by STIs. Some increase the likely hood of future transmission.

Why "STI" (sexually transmitted infections) and not "STD" (sexually transmitted disease)?

The terms STI and STD are synonymous. "STI" is used more frequently now because of the negative association with the term "disease" and because some diseases are considered incurable. In contrast, there is usually less stigma attached to the term "infection" and many STIs are actually easily curable.
