Sexually transmitted infections are on the rise.

Winnebago County health officials say the number of reported gonorrhea cases here have doubled compared to this time last year.  A majority of those infected are women younger than 30 years-old.

The Health Department says more doctors’ offices will test for the disease to find out just how widespread the infection is.
