Is glandular fever infectious after 3 weeks?

Hello. I was diagnosed with glandular fever approximately 3 weeks which was roughly when I started getting symptoms. My doctor tells me I am no longer contaigious that the contaigious period is in the incubation period which is 3 to 4 months prior to getting symptoms. My brother is coming to visit with his 4 month old baby and is extremely bothered and worried as he thinks I may infect her. Can you offer some confirmation ?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Yes glandular fever is not contagious after 3 week. It is contagious only during incubation period. So don't worry about spread of infection. Just be relaxed.
Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer.
Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
