Rochester, New York, is the seat of Monroe County and the third-most populous city after New York City and Buffalo, and like the state, the three most common STDs were chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis in that order. In 2018, the Rochester region saw increased reports of all three STDs, with a much higher ratio of female to male incidents of chlamydia, but the opposite in reported cases of gonorrhea and syphilis.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia continued to be the most reported sexually transmitted disease in the state, with an increase of 2.4% over 2017 figures, giving the state the highest number of chlamydia diagnoses since it became reportable in 2000 with 119,670 cases. The Greater Rochester region, which includes Monroe, Ontario, and a handful of other counties and cities, reported 6,874 chlamydia infections in 2018 for a rate of 560.4 per 100,000 residents. Reported diagnoses showed a steady increase compared to the 6,446 cases reported in 2017 and 6,226 reported in 2016. Incidents among females continued to be higher than among males, with 4,318 diagnoses in women for a rate of 710.2 per 100,000 compared to 2,556 in men for a rate of 415.8. Chlamydia diagnoses among young females were most concerning, with 2,945 cases among women between the ages of 15 and 24 for a rate of 3,457.1 per 100,000.

Chlamydia Cases and Rate in New York State, 2018

In the Rochester region, gonorrhea cases jumped to 2,159 in 2018, with a rate of 178.6 per 100,000 residents, while in the state gonorrhea increased 9.4% in 2018, with 37,322 reported cases. Like NYS, most gonorrhea diagnoses were among men, with 1,224 male cases for a rate of 202.7 compared to 935 female cases for a rate of 155.5. Unlike the state, the Rochester region saw a distinct decrease in gonorrhea diagnoses between 2016 and 2017, with 2,523 cases dropping to 2,104, so even with the increase in 2018, the number of cases was still lower than the total reported two years prior.

Gonorrhea

In the Rochester region, gonorrhea cases jumped to 2,159 in 2018, with a rate of 178.6 per 100,000 residents, while in the state gonorrhea increased 9.4% in 2018, with 37,322 reported cases. Like NYS, most gonorrhea diagnoses were among men, with 1,224 male cases for a rate of 202.7 compared to 935 female cases for a rate of 155.5. Unlike the state, the Rochester region saw a distinct decrease in gonorrhea diagnoses between 2016 and 2017, with 2,523 cases dropping to 2,104, so even with the increase in 2018, the number of cases was still lower than the total reported two years prior.

Syphilis

Syphilis is the third-most prevalent STD, but Monroe County ranked 57th in the nation among counties and independent cities. With 139 cases of primary and secondary syphilis, Monroe’s infection rate was 18.6 per 100,00 residents. The Rochester region had 161 reported incidents of primary and secondary syphilis with a rate of 13.4. Combined with diagnoses of early non-primary, non-secondary syphilis, cases totaled 223 for a rate of 18.6. Across the state, primary and secondary syphilis diagnoses increased by 12.8%, with congenital syphilis increasing by 93% compared to the previous year. Reported cases of primary and secondary syphilis, the stages in which it’s most infectious, were much higher in men, with 134 compared to 27 in women.

Syphilis Diagnoses and Rate in New York State, 2018

An undiagnosed STD puts individuals and their partners at risk. Even when someone doesn’t have any symptoms, they can still pass an STD on to others. Untreated STDs can lead to serious long-term health issues, including infertility and even death. Most STDs are preventable and curable, but the only way to know for sure of an STD diagnosis is through testing. The City of Rochester has numerous free and low-cost resources for STD testing and treatment.
