    Okay, completely ludicrous thread and I know it is but, I woke up this morning with the right side of my neck being extremely swollen to the point that it hurts to swallow saliva or breathe. I've booked an appointment with the doctor and I'm fairly certain that's its glandular fever.

    However, I've just been watching an NHS video about it and it intimates that one of the most obvious reasons for getting GF is from kissing. Now, I've got a girlfriend who had glandular fever a while ago. (I didn't know that you can get it from kissing). My question is, I hadn't seen her for nearly a month so does her having that condition mean that she'd been kissing someone else, which would potentially lead to her cheating on me?

    Cheers.

    It doesn't mean that she has cheated on you, it means there is a possibility. Having said that, most diseases can be caught by kissing because you're in close contact with someone.
    Basically there is no evidence that she has been cheating on you.

    Glandular fever is very contagious. You don't have to kiss someone to get it. Sharing a drink or whatever would equally do the job. Chill.

    Could also be tonsilitis going on the symptoms you've described, and that's got nada to do with kissing.... well it does, but y'no, plenty of other reasons you could have tonsilitis for

    Hey,

    I'm sadly prone to tonsillitis and glandular fever, to the point of when I next get it my tonsils are coming out. :woo:

    I've been told by numerous doctors and nurses that glandular fever is highly contagious, hence why its common in students as there's close contact, drink sharing, confined spaces and unhygenic living conditions.

    You don't always catch it from people and not always from kissing. If this were the case, my boyfriend would be super suspicious! If you're genuinely concerned, bring it up with your girlfriend, ask her to be honest. Talk to her and tell her your concerns. Do you not trust her? If she hasn't done anything wrong she should happily tell you this and support you whilst your ill and beyond!

    I know it's tricky but try not to jump to conclusions! I hope you get better soon! :yep:

    There is absolutely no proof whatsoever that your girlfriend is cheating or has ever cheated on you.
