STDs on the Rise

Posted: Updated:

Sexually transmitted diseases are on the rise with people over 45.

According to British researchers, cases of STD's have doubled for people between 45 and 64 years old in the last ten years.

Scientists have not pin pointed a reason for the increase but say a high number of men on erectile dysfunction drugs are getting infections.

They also say physical changes in post menopausal women make them more vulnerable to STD's.
