Would dysmenorrhoea cause vomiting during periods?

Every time on the first day of my period i vomit and vomit til i can t vomit anything up and it has gotten worse over the past 2 months i have lost so much weight i feel weak all the time and i don t think i have dysmenorrhoea because that is just pains and doesn t really have anything to do with vomiting.

Dysmenorrhea can cause severe abdominal cramps and vomiting. As a first line management you can take drugs like Domeperidone for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist, it is better to consult a physician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Wishing you all the best.

Hi! So I m 23 yrs old and I ve always been irregular since I had my first period, sometimes I have my period twice a month. I ve never been this delayed before, probably the max that I had was 32-36 days. The last period I had was October 5,2016 which lasted for 5 days (my normal flow). Since then, I haven t got my period. Normally I wouldn t panic but this is like 2 months already and it really scares me. So, yes, I did have unprotected sex with my bf but we are using the pull out method. I did try to use a couple of urine tests which all showed negative. I don t know if I got pregnant or maybe it s just me. I ve been feeling nauseaus, the urge to vomit, tired, back pain and sore breasts sometimes, which I ve never felt before since I don t have any symptoms whenever I m about to get my period. I had sex again with my bf a few days back and got this light red bleeding during intercourse. I thought it was my period but still nothing til now. I m pretty scared because this is the first time this had happened to me and I m really seeking for answers. I hope you can help me out and I would like to thank you in advance. :)

I had my period 2-3 weeks ago, I have a hernia, I had to pick up my 70 lb daughter 4 weeks ago, a week later I started bleeding, it lasted a week. Now I m bleeding again already, lots of belly pain, vomiting. Very nauseous, and a migraine. My period is very bright red. What could have happened?
