YES!!! Birth control was a huge contributing factor for me years ago (I have since been diagnosed with occipital neuralgia)
the best option I had before was using the patch, I would wear one constantly (no "period week" except once every 4 months) this kept the hormones at a more stable level instead of ramping up at the beginning of a birth control cycle and back down again for placebo week...
and you can ask your OB about
Mirena, its suggested you have a child before but that is not mandatory.
