I started the Mini pill 13 days ago at the beginning of my

Hi Dr., I started the Mini pill 13 days ago at the beginning of my period. My period has since ended, however the past 2 days I've had a migraine. Not a severe one, but still don't feel good and nauseous. I am used to getting a migraine, typically in the middle of my period. I'm afraid the pill will make my migraines more frequent. Is it possible the pill is causing this head pain the past 2 days or do you think it is a coincidence? Should I try and fight through it if it is a side effect since I just started it or stop taking them so I don't keep getting headaches? Thank you!

My last period was a few days late. I had been having breast

Hi, my name is ***** ***** last period was a few days late. I had been having breast tenderness and when it finally came I had some clots come out. I'm on the type of birth control which is a non-hormonal IUD (forgetting the name of it at the moment but it's the copper one). I'm in a committed relationship with a man and we both have children from previous relationships. This is the second time this has happened. I would like to know if I'm having miscarriages because of the type of birth control I'm on? I'm healthy and 35 years old. Appreciate any light you can shed on this.
