I am asking you this because my friend was here last night and she got her first period. She woke me up at night and said that she needed a pad. So we stayed up very late talking about all of it since i started mine already when i was 10. Later on, the said she felt sick and needed to throw up. When she came back, she said she had thrown up blood. What does that mean? Can is be dangerous?
Any advice on what to do would be great! Thanks!

If she's throwing up blood, then she needs to see a doctor immediately. It could be a sign that something is seriously wrong.

And it's not caused by her period, since there's no connection between the stomach and the reproductive system.

Thanks. She saw a doctor the first thing today and it all turned out ok. The doctor said that she had some weird thing in her stomach..can't remember what is was anymore. But i'm so happy that it wasn't anything bad. Now all she has is cramps..thanks anyways!
