In brief: Why do you ask

If you are having period problems ( such as missing your periods) and your estrogen levels have been tested and are too low, you need to address the cause.
Causes can include: being underweight, too much exercise, or an eating disorder or other medical problems. Your body is giving you a message, and you must listen to it. There are no foods or other ways to increase the levels.

In brief: Not that way

Birth control pills lower the estrogen levels in your body by suppressing ovarian secretion of the hormone.
