What Is Mononucleosis?
Mononucleosis refers to an infectious disease that is sometimes called mono or “the kissing disease.” However, you can get the virus that causes it through kissing, you can also get it in other ways like sharing drinks or utensils.
It is infectious, but you’re less likely to suffer from mono than other illnesses like the common cold.
What Are The Causes of Mononucleosis?
In general, mono is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It is a very typical virus that many people are exposed to as kids.
But even if you’re prone to EBV, it’s not certain that you’ll get mono. It is also possible to be infected with EBV and carry it in your body for your entire life without ever having symptoms of mono.
How Mononucleosis Spreads?
EBV propagate through bodily fluids. The most common way it transmits is through saliva, that is why you can get it from kissing.
It can be also propagated if you share food, drinks, or silverware with a person who is infected by it, or if an infected person coughs or sneezes near you.
As long as an object like a fork or spoon that an infected person used is still moist, the virus is might still present and infectious.
EBV can also transmit through blood and semen.
Although it’s less probable, you can get mono from medical procedures such as blood transfusions and organ transplants, or through sexual contact
When Symptoms of Mononucleosis Start?
If you have never been infected with EBV and you get it, you may start to have symptoms of mono within about 4 to 7 weeks. You could show symptoms such as a fever, fatigue, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, or other symptoms, like sore muscles and a loss of appetite.
Mono can result in different combinations of symptoms in different people. Some people have symptoms which are so mild so they are almost unnoticeable. Others have no symptoms at all.
Most of the people who get well in about 2 to 4 weeks, but sometimes the fatigue can last for several weeks after that.
In some cases, it can take 6 months or longer for the symptoms to fade away.
