Mononucleosis: Once infected, mono stays in your body. You don't contract mono a second time, although some of the symptoms are common and nonspecific, like fatigue, sore throat, muscle or joint aches. Probably this is not mono.

MONO-e-MONO: Yes, either one or both of you could have a re-acquired mononucleosis. If you are concerned, you can be tested. I would be happy to arrange these test for you with a Concierge Consult appointment. Thanks for trusting HealthTap with your care & questions.
