Will estrogen pills reduce body hair?

No: I'm unaware of any information regarding this. However, body hair may reduce while using spironolactone, a diuretic that blocks the action of testosterone on the hair follicle. It doesn't usually reduce hair, but prevents further hair growth. You have what you have unless you use laser epilation or electrolysis.
