New statistics from South Dakota’s Health Department show a steady and in some cases dramatic rise in sexually transmitted diseases in recent years.

Cases of gonorrhea have more than doubled since 2009, to 847, while syphilis cases have gone from none in 2011 to 79 last year.

The increase in STDs in the last few years might be tied to social media and the Internet, which have made it easier for people to find anonymous, risky sex partners, Kightlinger said.
