Brief Answer:
Hormonal disturbances likely

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Irregular periods can be due to pregnancy or any hormonal disturbances like hypothyroidism, hyperprolactemia or polycystic ovarian disease.
If urine pregnancy test is negative, then the pregnancy is ruled out.
Vomiting can be due to other reasons like gastroenteritis etc.
I will suggest you to get your hormonal profile done and get appropriate treatment.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
