In brief: Not likely

You should be fine if you use it in moderation (as with everything, moderation is key)

On the contrary, birth control pills can decrease how quickly the body breaks down caffeine. Taking green tea along with birth control pills can cause jitteriness, headache, fast heartbeat, and other side effects. Ref: http://www.rxlist.com/green_tea-page3/supplements.htm
