    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Mono

    I'm on my fourth week of mono and feeling a lot better. My boyfriend is on his second week and is handling it better than I did. I read that once you've had mono it's rare that you'll get it again but i'm just wondering how long my boyfriend and I need to not kiss. Do we need to wait to we're both clear of symptoms or does it matter?

    You both have mono, so kiss away. This virus (EBV) can resurface from time to time as fatigue, but not as another, full-blown case of mono. You should not get it again.
