Mono test

Jun 1, 2001

Dr., About one month after protected sex, I developed mono symptoms including fatigue, swollen lymph nodes, soar throat, and slight fever.

At first the doctor did not think it was mono, but we requested a mono test. The test came back positive. After about 2-3 weeks the symptoms left and I have been fine ever since.

Does a positive mono test conclude that the symptoms were definately from mono? Is there any chance it still could have been from HIV?

Are mono tests very reliable?

Thank you.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

It depends on what specific test for mono was performed.

CDC 26 weeks = 6 months?
go back on med??
