Can having Mononcleosis as a teen present future complications with excess fatigue in pregnancy.


Posted by always pregnant

I had mono when I was 18.  It took me quite a while to get over it.  For about two years I wrestled with fatigue and decreased immunity.  In my 30s I have been pregnant 3 times, including right now.  I am a active, healthy person, but during each pregnancy, I had extreme fatigue and a decreased immunity.  My last pregnancy, I would run out of breath just walking up the stairs.  I had 5 colds, the flu, and bronchitis.  They checked me for anemia thinking that may be the problem but it was normal.  Now I am going though the same thing all over.  I look around and see that my situation is apparently worse than other pregnant people, and I am just looking for an answer.   Could it be because I had mono as a teenager??
