Glandular fever is Infectious Mononucleosis popularly called Kissing disease. Glandular fever takes about four to seven weeks to come out after contact with someone who has it, although it is sometimes faster. There are possibilities for having spread the Virus to your partner since the virus would still be present in your saliva for months after you have been treated or even cured with the treatment.
