Birmingham is the most populous city in Alabama, the seat of Jefferson County, and the center of the Birmingham–Hoover Metropolitan Statistical Area, often referred to as Greater Birmingham. Like most metro areas, Greater Birmingham has struggled with rising STD rates. But unlike many, this area saw a decrease in chlamydia and gonorrhea cases between 2017 and 2018 and only a slight increase in syphilis cases.

Chlamydia

Jefferson County ranked 67th in the nation for reported cases of chlamydia in 2018 with 5,121 occurrences. This relatively low ranking may have been partially due to a dip in chlamydia cases in Greater Birmingham, which saw the 7,388 reported cases in 2017 drop to 6,391 in 2018. Both sexes saw a decrease in cases, with female diagnoses dropping from 4,985 in 2017 to 4,126 in 2018. Diagnoses among men also decreased, but not as significantly — 2,377 to 2,231. However, the reduction in chlamydia cases may be a temporary victory considering the significant spike in reported cases between 2016 and 2017 — from 4,982 to 7,388.

Chlamydia Cases and Rates in Birmingham-Hoover, AL, 2014-2018

Gonorrhea

Despite an increase in overall cases statewide, Greater Birmingham saw a significant decline in gonorrhea cases, with 6,892 in 2017 dropping to 5,998 in 2018. However, like chlamydia, this decrease occurred after a large spike between 2016 and 2017, from 5,854 to 6,892 cases. The 2017 increase was noticeable among males, from 1,068 in 2016 to 1,827 in 2017. Cases among men increased further in 2018 to 1,841. Cases among women stayed in the 900 range from 2014 to 2016, then skyrocketed to 1,644 in 2017 and dropped to 1,494 in 2018.

Syphilis

Jefferson County ranked 65th for reported primary and secondary syphilis in 2018, with 112 cases, translating to an infection rate of 17.0 per 100,000 residents. In Greater Birmingham, syphilis diagnoses in all stages increased from 314 in 2017 to 344 in 2018. Primary and secondary cases increased from 122 to 124. The rise in primary and secondary syphilis occurred in women, from 21 to 23. While male incidences remained the same between 2017 and 2018, the number of infections was four times higher than in women, with 101 cases reported both years.

It’s common for individuals with STDs to be asymptomatic, meaning they don’t experience any symptoms that tell them they’ve been infected. Even without symptoms, they can still pass an STD on to others, and the longer their STD goes undetected, the greater the risk of long-term negative effects on their health. Getting tested is the only way to know for sure if an STD is present. Residents of Birmingham can access several resources that provide free or low-cost testing.
