A 34-year-old female asked about a 17-year-old female:

are you still a virgen if it didn't go all the way in ? or if you didn't bleed

Virginity: Virginity doesn't have a clear cut definition. Some feel that the act of sexual behaviors (genital contact or even minor penetration) is enough to be de-virginized. Others feel that penetration must be involved. It comes down to what you think happened. It sounds like there was some penetration which by most would be considered a sexual act.

Abnormal platelets: Individuals with polycythemia (an acquired disorder of the bone marrow that causes an abnormal increase in all three blood cell types: red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets) have an increased tendency to form blood clots that can result in strokes or heart attacks. Some people also have abnormal bleeding because their platelets (responsible for clotting) are abnormal.

In addition to the high venous pressure, recent studies are now showing that the vein walls in varices are also abnormally weak, thus making them more prone to breakage, rupture and bleeding.
