Do you realize your muscles gains are not increasing since you started consuming the pill? Birth control pills have several effects on a woman’s body besides stopping ovulation. According to a 2009 study, oral contraceptives (OC) use can slow muscle gains in young women. Researchers say many active young ladies use OC to prevent pregnancies. Yet thorough studies on its body composition and exercise performance effect are incomplete.
The research went underway in 2009; and involved 73 healthy adult women under 31. All the women did ten weeks of full-body resistance training. Thirty-nine (39) were not on oral contraceptives; the other 34 took the pill. When the experiment ended, scientists checked the body mass of both groups. The 34 women on birth control gained 60% less muscle than the other group.
