What sexually transmitted infections can you get from oral sex?

Many!

Sexually_transmitted_infections
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!

Can douching after sex prevent sexually transmitted infections?

Not likely

Bird_flu
It is possible, but not likely. Once a bacteria or virus have been transmitted, physical douching will not likely dislodge them. Safe sex practices, especially condom use, are the best strategies to prevent STIs.

What are the immediate effects of sexually transmitted infections?

There are none.

Infertility
The scary part is, there are no "immediate" symptoms which is one of the reasons diseases can be spread unknowingly and damge can occir to the patient. Sometimes, it may take days or even months before people develop symptoms/effects. For women, early (not immediate) symptoms include vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, low-grade fevers, urinary symptoms and pain during sex. Infertility is possible.
