Bummer: At age 17, your communication between your brain and your ovaries is still maturing. Sometimes young women such as yourself have this bleeding. It could be normal developmental stage. Could also be your thyroid or pituitary. If you're concerned, a gynecologist can help you. You may consider birth control pills as they can help regulate your cycle. Again, consider seeing your doctor to discuss!
