Before any of us take a stab at answering this, can you provide some clarification.
Are you saying that your girlfriend forced herself to vomit (throwup) for the last three weeks? If so, how often does she do this and for how many years? Is she using laxatives or diuretics to control weight? Is she particularly stressed? What is the form of contraception?

In brief: Wait a few days

Relax and wait a few days! Stop any "self-induced methods" to lose weight, or worse: to try to induce a period.
If no normal period in a week or so, run a pregnancy test (with a first morning urine sample!) . Further depends on the test result!

The 400 lb gorilla in the room is wether your gf is pregnant.
At this point, if she is missing her period, you should be able to perform a pregnancy test. A blood level is best but most commercially available urine tests are sufficient at this point. This is important to know for several reasons. Other than that, there are a variety of other reasons for a delayed menstrual period which can be related to physical (including body weight) or mental health (stress and anxiety). If delayed by more than 2 weeks i would advise that she discuss this with her primary care physician.
