Welcome to ehealthforum,
Emergency contraceptive pills contain high dosages of hormones that can lead to adverse symptoms, and the vomiting that she describes could be due to the hormonal effect. She should have considered avoiding repeat intake of ECP. Wait and watch for her periods that can be delayed due to ECP use. Look out for development of any new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. She should visit her doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance if she does not get her periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if she gets abnormal bleeding. If pregnancy gets ruled out and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider getting her started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after her periods). She should be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy. She should avoid further use of emergency contraception.
Take care.
