The Wyoming Department of Health says they have seen a significant increase in the number of reported gonorrhea cases this year, especially in Campbell County.

Courtney Smith, Department of Health communicable disease surveillance manager, said so far this year 19 cases of gonorrhea have been reported just in Campbell County with 56 cases reported across Wyoming. Smith added that approximately 60 cases of gonorrhea are typically reported statewide each year.

Tai Cooper, communicable disease prevention manager with WDH, said gonorrhea is transmitted through unprotected sexual activity. “If left untreated, gonorrhea can cause serious health complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility in women. It’s essential that anyone infected get tested and properly treated.”

WDH offers free gonorrhea, chlamydia, hepatitis B and C and HIV laboratory testing and treatment for those at risk of infection. For more information click here.
