In brief: To some extent

Avoid exogenous hormones (ex.
Birth control pills). Eat smart, exercise, and try to be as close as possible to ideal weight (estrogen stored in body fat). Hard to avoid hormones in food supply. Avoiding meat & dairy can help. Careful with soy as substitute as some soy products have phytoestrogens.
