Power Pill 

Oral contraceptives have been getting a good deal of press recently, most of it bad. Now there is good news: women on the Pill are less likely to suffer knee injuries.

Since I don't have access to the full text, I'm left baffled. I mean, Estrogen does reduce swelling, but why does it tighten knee joints? I've heard of female athletes getting themselves pregnant just before an event to get an endurance boost, so I wonder if this is related?
