admin Jan 19 12 7 Comments

The CDC recently released the names of the top 15 cities across the United States that have the highest herpes rate. The center said that the top 5 cities from the list had 40% infection rate which was the result of sexually active young people in those cities.

Here’s a list of all 15 cities with highest herpes rate that was released by the Center for Disease Control:

  1. Atlanta
  2. Washington, D.C.
  3. Chicago
  4. Milwaukee
  5. Newark
  6. St. Louis
  7. New Orleans
  8. Baltimore
  9. Richmond
  10. Oklahoma City
  11. Nashville
  12. Memphis
  13. Detroit
  14. Birmingham
  15. Norfolk

The dangerous part of herpes is that it is easily transferable from person to person. Some people have it for years but after an outbreak they think that someone close to them was the reason for transferring it into them. Additional report says that wearing condoms during intercourse doesn’t make you safe from getting herpes. It can transfer just by rubbing against skin. They said, hooking up with different people increases the chance of getting herpes significantly.

Are you amazed to see that Atlanta has made it on top of the list?

    Happy you posted this,maybe more people will want to become more knowledgeable about sexually transferable diseases. Sometimes they need to see such graphic pictures because it makes it (diseases) real for them. Something like this is not something one can cover up. Just beceause a person may appear STD FREE LOOKS ARE DECEIVING!!! It really only takes one time( contact) to be left with something for life!

    @Nita M…. Just because YOU have one sex partner does not make YOUR significant partner have only one. These days you cannot trust no one.
