Many!: Hiv, hepatitis b and c, herpes 1 or 2. These viral diseases are incurable, and except for the herpes, cab be fatal. If you are concerned, you should see your dr. About performing tests. For my colleagues, i did not mention syphilis, gonorrhea, or chlamdya, all of which are treatable!

Definitely: Common STD's that are transmitted via oral sex are herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis. HIV can also be transmitted, especially if there are sores in the mouth. HPV can be transmitted as well, although would be difficult to test for it in the mouth. If you are concerned, be sure to tell your provider you are concerned about an oral STD so they can do the right type of testing (oral swab)

Incomplete question: If you do not provide specific background information, it is impossible to provide a specific response. In general, anyone who is sexually active/exposed can get a sti from their contact source if that contact is infected.
