    Hi,

    Great article, but I don’t think Chlamydia, which is the leading cause of female infertility, a significant co-factor in HIV spread and the leading cause of preventable blindness in the developing world, is the leading STD in America.

    While more than a million people in the United States have been diagnosed with Chlamydia and it is estimated that least 2 million more are infected, Herpes and HPV are more common.

    Chlamydia is the leading bacterial STD though, as Herpes and HPV are viral.

    Chlamydia is the number 1″reportable” disease as it is considered to be a pathogen of great public health importance. It’s impact on women’s reproductive heath is staggering and resulting Pelvic Inflammatory Diseases cause much physical and emotional pain.

    Thanks for highlight the risks of Chlamydia and encouraging testing. Good article!
