Unclear plan: I would clarify with the doctor what you are taking and why you are taking it. The answer depends on the underlying problem being treated. For example, If you have premature ovarian failure then one would base treatment on symptoms not blood estrogen levels. Other diseases treatment could be based on LH/ FSH levels.

Strange regimen: This is a strange hormonal regimen for a 27 year old. This looks for more like a regimen for someone who is post menopausal or for someone with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism. I would clarify with your doctor what your diagnosis is and confirm that you are on the correct medication and dose. Ask for your FSH and LH levels and get a 2nd opinion if plan is unclear.
