Probably not.  But to be sure, you may want to see a dentist and get it checked out.  The acid erosion from vomiting can be severe in bulimics who vomiting on a more regular basis. 10-15 times is excessive but over a three month period, I would say its highly unlikely.  At 3-5 times a day over 3 months would be about 90-150 times.
