    I’ve come across a few old articles ( circa 1999) claiming that gynecological surgery / disorders and oral contraceptions can increase the risk of of Cumulative Trauma Disorder amongst female workers.  However, none of the articles explain the connection.  Can this be true?  If so, what is the connection?  Can anyone recommend a website that explains the connection?

    Long-standing use of birth control may increase the risk of some connective tissue disorders and is a yellow flag for spinal manipulation.  There are probably some other hormonal reasons out there in regards to pain perception and the estrogen/seratonin link.
