short version - MONO

Me and my girlfriend have been seeing each other for 7 weeks now. I have had the symptoms of mono for a week and a half meaning, I have had mono in my system (and have been contagious) for the at least 5 maybe 7 weeks. We have been kissing up until the point where I started getting symptoms of mono.

If she was going to get it, she would have got it with me or at least by now. Is this correct??

Can we continue to kiss/make out? I have not since actually knowing I have mono, just for her protection from it. But it seems that if she is going to get mono, her body already has it in her from the previous weeks, and kissing her now will not make a difference!!!

Any thoughts? should i wait? how long? is it ok just to kiss her? It is really tough!

My bad. I didn't get the answer I was looking for and I thought it would make it less of a read if I shortened it.

Re: short version - MONO

from what i have read, it can 4-7 weeks from exposure until symptoms start showing up. (currently i have strep AND mono at the same time)
i would not kiss her at all.
