I was told I have mumps. Today is day 9 since swelling

Customer Question
Hi, I was told...

Hi, I was told I have mumps. Today is day 9 since swelling happened and it is about 3 days since swelling is gone. Myself and my partner are wondering is it safe for us to kiss again and have our sexual life back to normal? There is very little information about this. Thank you

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

I had swelling for the past 9 days

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

But it is completely gone for the past 3 days

Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.If a person has taken the mumps/MMR vaccine,he/she will not develop severe mumps even on exposure.The infection is considered to be contagious for the first 5-7 days after the swelling appears.You appear to be noncontagious at present.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
