After we recover from Mono can we Kiss again?

User Profile
My girlfriend had mono 3 months ago, and now I have it, and I am pretty sure I got it from her. After I get better, are we allowed to still kiss, because I heard you cant get mono more than once.

Yes, you are allowed to kiss. Once you overcome the infective mononucleosis (mono) you have immunity for life and you can’t get it again.
