I rarely get painful ones, but when I do get it I usually go and poo.

I know mine can get painful to the extent of making me feel nauseous and I can't move from them but they've never made me vomit. That sounds really intense? Has she had it checked out by a GP?

This happens to me but I am much older- It would probably be wise to go to the gp as they can prescribe medication which has really helped me!

no she doesn’t like going to the doctors. She has vomited for the past 2 periods. Even if she did go, given shes not even 13 yet (may not be able to swallow tablets) what could she be given? they can’t put her on the pill can they?

i do understand she may not like going to the doctors but i would say that's the best thing to do in my opinion. Oh i couldn't swallow tablets until like 1 year ago (I'm 18 now :rofl:) but i don't think there's anything that's strong enough if its not a tablet??
Are her periods regular? Maybe its a hormonal problem. Not a professional so i cant say BUT i had an issue with my periods and that's why they were (and still are) really painful.
I dont know enough about the pill but would that just stop her periods? I dont see how that would help with the pain?

Edit: i really don't know much about the pill so maybe what I'm saying is totally wrong but i do know some bits about periods bc of my problem

Why would she not be able to swallow tablets? They can give her anti sickness medication.

Yes, this happens to me, but not just on first day and not just in mornings...my head of year once caught me throwing up in a bin at school probably the worst experience of my school life. I have thrown up in toilets around school various times and my friends all know it's period things lol. I now have to have an invigilator watching me in exams and a special seat near the back of the hall when I have my period just in case...
My sister had this for roughly half a year of periods (sounds like a lot, but only 6 if you think about it) then it just stopped, ig she grew out of it. For me, i've had it for three years with some being worse than others. My other sister (not the one above, lol i have a lot of sisters) had this from age roughly 18 and she has now been told she has Endometriosis...i think thats the right spelling, i have not been to GP about it so idk if i do.
I would go to GP and speak to them, you said she doesn't like going to the doctors, ik there are anti-nausea over the counter medications which are meant to be good, maybe try them.
Good luck to her x
Ps, you seem like a very nice sister

she has travel sickness tablets for travelling but thats about it. She hasn’t taken tablets so I don’t know if she can or can’t but I was assuming tablets were for those 13 and up, or 12 and up, could be wrong.

even little kids can take tablets if you show them how. a 12-year-old most definitely should be able to.

her periods were on and off at 10, properly started at 11 and was continuously on it every 2 weeks which used to happen to my other sister, now shes 12 and vomiting.

The pill may stop them or help regulate her periods

yes but the pill ALSO has a lot of other side effects that can be pretty damaging sometimes. I would recommend seeking professional help, finding out all the information before making an informed decision If she doesn't like going doctor, maybe go with her to act as a support figure? Shes 12 and will most likely need a guardian anyways.

she starts school from march 12th, and she will most likely not have her period when she starts school but after that from april she could and I am not sure if shes allowed to miss one day every month

Yes, happens to me occasionally and more frequently than the average female on her period. I just suck it up and deal with it.
