In brief: Small chance
For women taking birth control pills (ocp's) properly and consistently, the chance of pregnancy is reported to be 0.
3% per year, or 1 pregnancy in 333 women each year. The actual pregnancy rate in the "real world" is reported to be at least 3% on ocp's, or 1 pregnancy in 33 women each year. So, there is a small chance of getting pregnant, regardless of whether or not one is diabetic.
