One of the most common STDs is growing resistant to antibiotics

Gonorrhea, one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the United States, is growing resistant to initial antibiotic treatment.

STDs are usually treated by a series of antibiotics but the Centers for Disease Control reports gonorrhea has grown resistant to azithromycin, the antibiotic commonly prescribed.

A combination treatment of multiple drugs, including azithromycin, still works but medical experts say that will not last forever.

The report was published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
