Leeches were used in a variety of medical procedures. It was thought that sickness lay in the blood, so draining the blood was the way to cure sickness.

@Helix_luco: That's one of the reasons they used leeches to drain blood, yes.

Ah! The good ol' blood letting!

I wonder if these are growing pains, special to her particular circumstances.

Yeah, not going to lie, but medieval and renaissance medicine wasn't exactly the best for the body at the time.

Still, better than having an HMO...

Actually, Myung, I was thinking the same thing, that perhaps with Jenny's unusual maturing of the body through magic her body could be suffering from something that women go through each month... yet it's more physically detrimental due to a combination of her preternatural state, and her supernatural modification.
