No, but: Soybean will not increase your estrogen levels. However, soy products and supplements may contain high levels of chemicals which act similarly in your body to estrogens.

A 37-year-old member asked:

Is estrogen higher or lower during pregnancy?

Dr. Cayce Jehaimi

High: Preganancy is a state of hyper estrogenism or high estrogen state, mainly due to increase estrogen production by the placenta (called estriol). The rise of estrogen leads to various physiological changes in the women's body including lowered tone of the esophageal sphincter, hence why heart burn sensation is common in the early stages of pregnancy. Good luck.

Variable: The estrogen level will depend on which part of the menstrual cycle you are in, if you are menstruating. If not, it will be low. If on hormonal contraception it will depend on what kind. It will also depend on the lab procedure used. You need to check the lab normals for your personal situation.
