How long is mono contagious if i no longer have

Patient

Q: How long is mono contagious if i no longer have fever or sore throat? Still have swollen glands aches and fatigue.

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
A 2 week period from the diagnosis is considered safe and the person with mono is considered to be non-infective. Since you still have swollen glands, there are slight chances of transmitting the infection.
The aches and fatigue take time to go, even after clearing up of the infection.
However, if it has been 2 weeks already, you should not worry.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
