Can be normal : The mono infection can last for 6 - 9 months. strep throat is more common in the spring and summer. A UTI happens more frequently in women in their 20s and teenagers who are sexually active.I recommend plenty of fluids and rest to allow your body to fight the mono infection. if you're tired, going to a physical therapist for reconditioning. some lab work for mono can be positive for months.

Unlikely: This would clear with yeast pills. It is easily confirmed or excluded by direct physical exam or simple in office tests.
