In brief: Not significant

100 grams of strawberries have about 50 micrograms of phytoestrogens.
This is not really enough to be significant.

In brief: No.

Estrogen is derived from cholesterol, and plants do not make or contain cholesterol.
Other cholesterol derived hormone families include androgens (testosterone), progesterones, glucocorticoids (cortisol), mineralocortcoids (aldosterone), and vitamin d compounds. They are found only in animal-derived foods, and some mushrooms/fungi.
