In brief: Unlikely

That is unlikely.
Trigger fingers are very common and can be treated with an injection.

In brief: I am not sure

Trigger finger is more common in women.
Although the association of estrogen deprivation with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in postmenopausal women needs further study.
