In brief: HARD TO SPECULATE

Mono is usually caused by the EB virus and for many it will happen as an unremarkable viral infection in early to mid childhood.
If so you would be immune. If not, adolescent or adult mono tends to be more intense and lengthy.It can pass through the saliva of asymptomatic persons either through direct or indirect contact.
