Thanks for posting your query.
I hope thrush you are mentioning is vaginal and not the oral thrush [as section mentioned is vaginal and uterine health].

Common symptom presented during vaginal thrush is white discharge, itching and burning in vulva, discomfort during coitus.

Headache and vomiting is not due to thrush. It can be due to indigestion or stress.
But if headache is like migraine then you need to tell her to discontinue oral contraceptive and use some other method.

Thrush is usually treated with single dose fluconazole tablet or vaginal pessary for 7 days.
I hope I have answered your query. In case of any doubt, please feel to revert back.
Best regards,
Dr. Neelam.
