Can soy raise estrogen levels? Is this always a good thing?

My doctor tells me soy does not increase estrogen. Is this true?
Last year I had thought I was already in menopause because my period stopped for a year. My estrogen and other homones were normal, even high. As it turns out I lost my period due to stress and cysts caused by stress. I did develop osteoporosis. I attempted to up my protein intake and started eating soy three times a day. Then my estrogen level went up extremely high, to 400. At times I would feel dizzy. I question why the media constantly talks about increasing estrogen levels through soy as though estrogen should be as high as possible. I have read in Dr. Lee's writings that in most other countries where the protein and dairy consumption is lower, estrogen levels of women are all lower than ours in the U.S. yet they have virtually no problems with menopause and osteoporosis. He even says that women here have higher estrogen after menopause than women in other countries do in their twenties.
