Colorado Springs is the most populous city in El Paso County, which has seen STD rates rise like the rest of the state. In 2018, El Paso County had higher incidences of chlamydia and gonorrhea cases than the statewide rate, but it had a lower number of syphilis cases despite a faster rate of increase.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia cases in El Paso County reached 4,015 in 2018, with a rate of 561.9 per 100,000 residents. El Paso’s case rate was higher than the statewide rate, and it was the eighth-highest among the 64 counties in Colorado. Chlamydia infections climbed from the previous year, with 3,748 cases reported in the county in 2017. Since 2014, the rate of chlamydia diagnoses has risen 59.8% from the 2,512 counted that year. This rate increase was twice as high as the statewide increase of 25.2% between 2014 and 2018.

Gonorrhea

El Paso County had 1,262 instances of gonorrhea reported in 2018, up from 1,072 in 2017. This equates to a rate of 176.6 cases per 100,000 residents, which was higher than the 156.2 statewide rate. In a county comparison, El Paso ranked fourth for the highest rate of infection, behind Pueblo, Denver, and Arapahoe. Between 2014 and 2018, the number of gonorrhea cases has increased by 145.5%, going from 514 to 1,262. However, this rate of increase was slightly slower than the statewide percentage, which was 163.79% during this same period.

Syphilis

In 2018, only 28 of Colorado’s 64 counties reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis, which included El Paso County. However, the county ranked 20th for the rate of infection, with 27 cases yielding 3.8 infections per 100,000 residents. This was lower than the statewide rate of 5.9 and much lower than Washington County’s 21.2 and Denver County’s 18.4. Despite a drop from 29 cases in 2017, El Paso has seen a 350% increase in infections since 2014, with the biggest jump between 2014 and 2015 when reported cases went from 6 to 21. In comparison, the statewide rise of primary and secondary syphilis infections was 70.3% between 2014 and 2018. El Paso also ranked 20th for its rate of infection of early latent syphilis with 19 cases, or a rate of 2.7 per 100,000 residents.

Undiagnosed STDs can do serious harm to a person’s body, especially the longer they go untreated. STDs can be passed on to partners even when a person doesn’t have symptoms because they’re still contagious and can spread the infectious organism at any time. The only way to know for sure whether an STD infection has occurred is through testing. There are several resources in and around Colorado Springs that offer free or low-cost STD testing to individuals looking for peace of mind.
