Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Sharing fluids indirectly less likely transmits mono but possible. Get tested and you will know for sure.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
