Can eating or taking anything with photoestrogen have effect on urine fibroids in uterus ?

In brief: Theoretically

Fibroids are estrogen dependent and grow in response to estrogens.
It may be possible that phytoestrogens would stimulate growth in fibroids, although i'm unaware of any scientific evidence proving this one way or the other. Birth control pills containing estrogen are used to control bleeding from fibroids, but may actually stimulate them to grow faster, given the strength of these estrogens.
