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.
