Beware, Illinois – Don’t look for love in these 10 places in Iowa

My lovely wife of over 20 years was born and raised in Iowa. I should clearly state that based on what I’m about to share. There are 10 counties in Iowa that you should really avoid if you’re also looking for love. You can thank me later.

I lived in Iowa and still have a lot of family in Iowa. Wonderful people full of love. However, there are 10…let’s call them problem spots…where you want to avoid a love affair for a good reason.

Iowa Health and Human Services has very detailed statistics on STDs and there are 10 counties in Iowa that have problems in this area of ​​life. In my defense, I’m not the only person who has looked at this data. The Neighbor even ranked the top worst counties in Iowa based on STD rates:

10 – Appanoose County

9 – Scott County

8 – Johnson County

7 – Polk County

6 – Webster County

5 – Story District

4 – Wapello County

3 – Des Moines County

2 – Woodbury County

1 – Black Hawk County

I won’t spoil your fun looking at the exact numbers, but let’s dive deeper into Black Hawk County, Iowa. They had as many as 1,102 cases of Chlamydia, 512 cases of gonorrhea and 68 cases of syphilis in various stages. That’s astonishing when you consider that the population of the entire province is barely above 130,000. Sorry if I don’t shake hands…

I think this topic is tough enough without me saying anything other than you can look at the Iowa Health and Human Services site for more information and information.
