In brief: Yes, but . . .
Birth control (contraceptive) methods work, regardless of whether a person is on Insulin or not.
If a person is using the birth control method properly, it will be just as effective with or without insulin. If a person is not using the birth control properly, using or not using Insulin will not help the birth control work any better.
