Doctor :   Once someone gets mono, the virus stays in that person's body for life
Doctor :   But this doesn't mean that if you've had mono you are always contagious.
Doctor :   Over time, the virus becomes less contagious. Eventually, it's very unlikely that a person who had mono will transmit the virus to someone else
Doctor :   generally ba person can spread the infection for many months after the symptoms are completely gone some studies show as long as 18 months
