The growth of dating apps is one suspected culprit, though no studies have been conducted to prove a link between online hookups and the spread of STIs, said Wong.
Last year, the province recorded 3, cases of gonorrhea, a dip from the roughly 3, a year earlier, but a major jump fromwhen only 1, cases were reported. On the other side of the country, Nova Scotia has also noticed a steady rise in gonorrhea and chlamydia cases sinceprimarily in the Halifax area, said Dr.
Trevor Arnason, regional medical officer of health for the central zone, which includes the provincial capital. There's been a slow increase in cases of chlamydia in Nova Scotia sincethough no rapid jump in the number of infections as seen with gonorrhea, said Arnason, noting that syphilis cases have been declining sincefollowing an outbreak among men who have sex with men in Along with reduced condom use, Arnason said there's a concern about the growing number of people engaging in sex with multiple partners, possibly facilitated by social networking sites and dating apps.
With young girls and many boys in Canada being vaccinated against human papillomavirus -- a major cause of cervical cancer -- and changes to guidelines advising that lower-risk women be tested less often for that malignancy than previously recommended, there is likely less screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia, Arnason said. Such STI testing was often performed at the same time as a Pap smear.
Alberta, for example, recorded 4, cases of gonorrhea inup from about 3, the previous year. Inthe latest year for which national figures are available, there were almostcases of chlamydia, the most commonly reported STI in Canada, with females accounting for two-thirds of infections, says the Public Health Agency of Canada PHAC.
Between andchlamydia rates increased by almost 17 per cent.
