Birth control pills: See your doctor to make sure, but it sounds like you suffer from dysmenorrhea. This is common and can be easily improved by starting some sort of hormonal birth control. Also over-the-counter medications like Ibuprofen or Naproxen can help. Once the pain improves, i think the vomiting should improve also.
