Hi,
Thanks for the query.

According to your description the possibilities are:
Crohns disease: can flareup during periods. And can present with pain abdomen, frequent bowel movements, vomitings.
Yellow stain could be because of possible yeast infection during flaring up or rarely due to presence of fistulous track between intestines and vagina.

Pelvic inflammatory disease: it can present with pain abdomen that can become severe during periods.
Nausea, vomitings, vaginal discharge etc can be seen in PID.
The color of the discharge depends on the causative organism.
Chlamydia, gonorrhea etc can cause yellow to greenish yellow discharge.
Infection can occur by skin to skin contact apart from sexual intercourse.

So better you once consult gynecologist or general physician to get examined and to rule out above possibilities.
