I started bleeding from my vagina 2 weeks after my period started, and did some research on the boards; I'm spotting. I've been under a lot of stress lately, so now that I know what's going on, I'm not too surprised. However, I'm wondering if I should see a doctor about it. I'm 17, and not really sexually active (just playing around with only one guy, and we're really careful), so I've never seen a gyno before. I'm a little nervous about the spotting, but I'm not sure if it merits much concern. Any thoughts?

Also, how long can I expect this to last?

If I had a million dollars, I would give you one.

This could be just a normal aberration, but seeing a gyno would be a wise precaution, especially if it lasts any longer, or if it happens again. It sounds like you are handling this very maturely.
