STD testing has revealed an increase in gonorrhea and chlamydia cases in Texas' Lubbock county, according to a local news source. Local experts anticipate that these numbers will continue to rise through the year, reflecting the trends that have been seen in several states.

According to the Lubbock Avalanche Journal, the city of Lubbock ranks eighth in Texas for STD rates, and the county is 11th of 254 counties for STDs. One local healthcare expert noted that these numbers are comparable to what some states have for their overall statistics. However, the news source noted that while STD rates overall were on the rise, the number of newly diagnosed cases of AIDS and HIV dropped in 2013.

A Board of Health Review released in 2010 noted that cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia within Lubbock county were higher than the state average. The Lubbock Avalanche Journal noted that the county's health department has seen 21 cases of syphilis, 386 cases of gonorrhea and 907 cases of chlamydia from the beginning of 2013 through June. This is compared to the 14 cases of syphilis, 290 cases of gonorrhea and 850 cases of chlamydia that were reported from January to June of 2012
