I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!

You need to talk to your own medical professional about this, as shellfish allergy does kill people. I am closing this until you clarify that you have talked to your doctor about it.

Imitation crab is hardly anything paleo. It has wheat and sugar and industrial oils often added into it.

There is no good answer to how severe a person's allergy must be, every person is different. Some people aren't allergic to the shellfish so much as the mercury content which is highest in shellfish over other seafoods, usually. Some people can have very severe reactions to the proteins secreted through mucous membranes or saliva, ie kissing or contact of vaginal secretions. It really depends on the individual, however I would guess this person's partner is likely to have some past experience with other partner's eating shellfish.

What is the mechanism that effects the female's parter, since there is no "deposit"?

Well, the good news is that most relationships don't last. I predict you'll be back to eating shrimp and crab in no time! In the mean time, would imitation crab be of any help?

For some weird demented reason, this question made me think of Kip Addotta's Wet Dream:

I invited her up to my place for a little midnight bait. I said, "C'mon baby, it'll only take a few minnows." She threw me that same old line: "Not tonight, I got a haddock."

And she wasn't kidding, either, cause in came the biggest, meanest looking haddock I'd ever seen come down the pike. He was covered with mussels. He came over to me; he said, "Listen, Shrimp. Don't you come trollin' around here." What a crab. This guy was steamed. I could see the anchor in his eyes.

I turned to him and I said, "Abalone! You're just being shellfish." Well, I knew there was going to be trouble, and so did Gill, cause he was already on the phone to the cods. The haddock hits me with a sucker punch. I catch him with a left hook. He eels over. It was a fluke, but there he was, lying on the deck, flat as a mackerel, kelpless.

As a physician, I must weigh in, contrary to what the previous individual said, your consumption of shell fish can affect your mate. The most common instances are semen deposits causing a reaction in the recipient, however it has been shown to cause affect if the female's partner is allergic. There is no real answer to how long it will stay in your system, however, you must be cautious and keep shellfish consumption to a minimum until you know how it will affect your partner, if at all.

You are over thinking. I doubt that your shellfish consumption will affect him at all.

Are you worried about kissing after you eat shellfish? I certainly can't see how this would become an issue through sexual intercourse. How severe is his allergy?
