It can increase the risk of cardiovascular side effects like heart attack and increases risk of blood clots and strokes especially if you are over 35 y/o. In fact, most Drs wont give oral birth control pills to smokers over 35 because giving female hormones to smokers so greatly increases the risks it is not worth the risk to give the Pill to them any longer. It kind of depends on what kind of estrogen you are speaking of. Do you mean birth control pills, topical estrogens or hormone replacement therapy, but really, all estrogens carry this risk when you smoke. I know the interaction checker doesnt mention this risk but if you look up your kind of hormone, it will tell you not to smoke and use these drugs.
