Twenty or more viruses, bacteria, and other organisms (e.g. trichomonas, a protozoan) are the causes of various STDs. You can only catch them by having sex with an infected partner. There are many online sources for comprehensive information. Two of them are the US CDC (www.cdc.gov/std) and the American Sexual Health Association (www.ashasexualhealth.org). Also many other public health departments
