How many people have STDs?

 

Every year in the United States, the CDC estimates that there are 20 million new STD infections, which is 10% of the US population!

Total estimates for those currently affected by the most prevalent STD/STI infections is around 110 million. 1 in 2 sexually active men and women will contract an STD/STI infection by the time they reach the age of 25 and it's estimated that 1 in 8 people have genital herpes (most people just don't show any symptoms)!
