Migraines and the birth control pill

Patient : My doctor put me on Alysena 28 birth control pill 3 months ago, everything was fine until i began the third month. At the start of the third month, I developed a migraine that still hasn't gone down. I have this migraine all day everyday even through the night. I have been prone to migraines before, but the first 2 months I didn't have them. What could this mean? Could the pill be causing it? I also have developed breast tenderness which is also a side effect I've heard.
Symptoms:  have had a constant migraine for 15 days
