In brief: Possibly

Peppermint oil interacts with a good number of medications that are metabolized by the liver. Birth control pills are metabolized by the liver; so it's likely there is an interaction although i could not find a definitive reference stating what effect the oil would have on bcp's.
Your gynecologist may have more information.
