Vomiting after period - anyone ever experienced this?

So I'm 35, haven't used any bc for years. Periods used to be rather irregular but by tracking them I've established a pattern of approx 34/35 day cycles, first day medium flow with cramps then light flow from days 2 to 5. This is different to what I experienced when I was younger and on bc but as it's consistent I consider this to be normal for my body. My partner and I began ttc in December but we were 'careless'' for a couple of months before this.

After AF in October, I randomly vomited on the last day. Assumed I'd picked up a tummy bug as I'd come back from holiday the day before. However, after AF in November I suffered bad nausea and headache/shaking on the last day and this month (yesterday) on last day of AF i again experienced the vomiting for a few hours in the evening. No headache but similar feeling to being badly hungover.

Anyone else experience this? I've read about menstrual migraines due to drop of oestrogen before AF but there doesn't seem to be anything mentioned about it happening afterwards. I'm not sure whether this is just something new but normal which I'll need to now expect each month, or whether something is going on and I should see my gp?

I experience a migraine on day one of my period & also another on day 4-5. See you Dr as you could take Maxalon or Motilium to help with the nausea && vomiting. It sounds miserable & definitely hormone related.

Thanks for the reply kittykat. Do you experience vomiting with yours? It's really weird as I was fine all day yesterday then there was literally just this few hours in the evening. Didn't eat again afterwards but did manage to keep a cup of tea down before bed.

Used to have migraines years ago but never vomited before so wasn't sure whether this is something I should be concerned about, what with ttc.

I have vomiting with mine every 5-6 months.

I don't have vomiting but only nausea with the migraine. I take Maxalon or Motilium & that helps. Magnesium is supposed to help with PMS migraines. I'd see your Dr to maybe have some hormone testing. I think I read in here someone took vit B complex high dose that helped with migraines & too them before getting pregnant.

Thanks everyone, I'll make an appointment. I would like some reassurance that all is ok & if not I can do something about it! Even if I just need something to settle the nausea. Wish me luck!
