Brief Answer:
Due to mild hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The irregular bleeding that she is having can be due to mild hormonal disturbance caused by diet and exercise. The bleeding that has started now is likely to stop on its own in next 2-3 days. In case the bleeding is heavy or persistent then do consult a gynecologist for hormonal tablets to control the bleeding and cycles.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
