In your new article about vaginal discharges it says a yeast infection can be passed between partners, is that only a female partner or is it possible to pass a yeast infection to a male partner as well?

Yes, yeast infections can be passed between partners of any gender. In body parts other than the vagina, yeast infections are often called "thrush", and can occur in the mouth and throat and other parts of the body too. In general, candidasis can occur in many places in the body, especially where it's dark and moist.
