I know you can have it in your system your whole life and it will come out at a time of stress or low immunity. I have never had it myself but tested positive when I gave it to my 3month old trough my breast milk. I never even knew this was possible until after it happened. Good luck and take it easy while you recover. I don't think it will affect you ttc

I got mono over 10 years ago. I never knew how I got it, as I don't share anything with anyone, and I was in a steady relationship at the time. You can get it from drinking from water fountains, if someone previously put their mouth on the spicket, walking into someone's sneeze, etc.

It's a virus that stays in your system. Everytime I got tested, I always tested a low positive. I did get it a total of 3 times I think. It'll pop up at a time of stress, or from another illness that weakens your immune system.

My hubby or kids never got it, so I feel I'm ok. I'm also pg with my 3rd, so try not to fret so much about it. It's more common than people realize

did you say you used your sister's insurance? you know that's so illegal, right? why if you're ttc, don't you try and get insurance? you can't exactly use her insurance when you're seeing the OB doc.
