Robb Wolf and others have mentioned hormones contribute to "leaky gut."
If this is true even bio-identical natural estrogen hormones could be problematic??!!
Perhaps some new evidence:

I got off the pill about a year ago (was on it 16 years), as part of my plan to heal my leaky gut, regulate hormones and generally get healthier. It did work for it's intended use like a champ!

There is a male birth control that was in the works. I believe it was from cottonseed oil which isn't paleo at all. But it had far less side effects. It was killed off like most male birth controls tend to be.

If you swallow hormone pills then it makes sense to me it could be hard on your gut - not to mention your liver. Not good. Estrogen, testosterone, progesterone and DHEA are all best when administered topically (applied to the skin). Bioidentical (versus synthetic) are far, far superior.
Read Suzanne Somers' books on this topic. Also Johnathon Wright, MD has a great book on hormones.
