I don’t know the answer, but I have been wondering the same thing myself, out of curiosity.
Can’t wait to see the responses to this!

The pill “instructions” that come with the pack I think say something like: side effects have not been found but if you realize you are pregnant stop taking the pill immediately.  Maybe talk with your doctor to be on the safe side?

Technically, birth control pills are category X in pregnancy- the absolutely, never prescribe them.  The reason it is X is because there is no benefit, and potential risk.  Overall though, it is very low risk.  There have been studies linking it to an increased risk of schizophrenia, but none (that I know of) were good studies. There is one published article linking OCPs while pregnant to an increased risk of urogenital abnormalities.  Overall, it’s a very low risk, and MUCH lower than alcohol.
