    But experts say results from the small study are no reason to stop birth control.

    I would like to see this study for the following reasons:

    -No difference in performance was seen between the two groups, I highly doubt this group of women were all resistance-trained prior to this study.

    -"Women not taking oral contraceptives gained more than 60 percent more muscle mass than those on the pill". I would like to see how big the difference was in kgs.

    Great find mate, I'd like to read this study further but I can't find it yet, so I think it's unpublished.
