Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise in Sacramento County.

Doctors diagnosed about 11,650 Sacramento County residents with chlamydia last year, up nearly 20 percent from 2017 and up more than 50 percent from 2014.

Gonorrhea was up 15% from 2017 to 2018. Syphilis was up 44% during that time. Why the increase? Condom use is down significantly. Also, a rise in dating apps could be responsible.
