I came across a study that suggested that being on the pill can impair muscle gain to quite a large extent (some pills more than others, depending on the 'androgenicity of the progestin' in the particular pill - which in practice I think means that the older pills are more likely to be a bigger issue than the newer ones). I've made an appointment to talk to my GP about it, but just wondering about other people's experiences - has anyone else switched to different contraception method or a newer pill for that reason and, if so, did you find it any easier to get stronger afterwards?
