In brief: Not unexpected.

Sounds like you have menstrually related migraines, and vomiting often occurs with such headache patterns.
Might consider a triptan to stop headache, and Frova (frovatriptan) research suggests benefit of a long-acting prep in menstual migraine, but may prevent headaches if taken a few days prior. Since complex, recommend working closely with headache expert.

Migraine and period well associated.
Migraine frequently causes nausea. Suggest seeing your physician and get started on either migraine treatment. If migraines are more often than consider migraine prevention.
