What else is going o: it is not unusual for young people to be concerned about what's going on with their bodies, or become worried about health issues. I think the important is to find out what else is going on her life. So, first she should see her pediatrician or doc If everything checks out OK, then explore stresses (senior in HS jitters, family or other relationship issues, drug/alcohol use, sex identity issues).
