Public Health England noted that most of this decrease had taken place in sexual and reproductive health services, where chlamydia testing has fallen by 61 percent since 2015, a trend "likely reflecting a reduction in service provision". Local STI services can be located online via NHS Choices. From those tests, an estimate of 126,000 young adults, between the ages of 15-24 years, was diagnosed with it.
Chlamydia testing has fallen 8% in the a year ago, there's a strain of drug resistant super-gonorrhea going around, and according to new data from Public Health England, syphilis is well and truly back with a vengeance.
Syphilis and gonorrhoea have increased by 20 per cent in the previous year and this is from a rise in unprotected sex.
Gonorrhea and chlamydia are bacterial infections, and many people who contract them do not experience symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In March, the first case of super-gonorrhoea was detected in the United Kingdom, in a man who is thought to have caught the infection having sex overseas in South East Asia. PHE England calls this rise as "concerning". This is mainly because gonorrhoea strains that are affecting people are becoming increasingly resistant to the antibiotics that are at hand. The numbers have risen by 13 percent in the last five years says the report.
The number of syphilis diagnoses in 2017 was the largest annual number reported in almost 70 years.

Councillor Izzi Seccombe, chairwoman of the Local Government Association's Community Wellbeing Board, said the rise in attendances was placing a "significant strain" on council resources.
"There is no time for complacency", she said.
"Unless greater recognition and funding is given to councils to invest in prevention services, a reversal in the encouraging and continuing fall in STIs is now a real risk".
Chlamydia diagnoses among those aged 15-to-24 have reduced by two per cent, however, this may be due to less testing, which has also gone down by eight per cent. The recommendations also emphasize on high-quality relationships and sex education at schools.
"Consistent and correct condom use with new and casual partners is the best defense against [STDs], and if you are at risk, regular check-ups are essential to enable early diagnosis and treatment", said PHE's Dr. Gwenda Hughes.
