Melatonin And Estrogen?!

Im having trouble sleeping and bought a melatonin supplement from my local drug store. Melatonin is a hormone; does it affect the estrogen hormones/birth control pill at all?! Like lessen their effectiveness?? I would think it would be clearly pointed out all over the place, if it did mess up birth control effectiveness, considering melatonin is easily accessable, but I want to be safe.

If anyone can give me an answer, much is appreciated!!! Thank you!
