If I change one hormone dosage, do I change all?

After my yearly physical, the dr. (general ) felt my estrogen was too low for someone my age. I agreed to use 2 pumps of estrogel versus one pump per day. I must say that I sleep better and the hot flashes and heart palpitations are almost non-existent. I recently had my blood levels checked and the dr. feels that the numbers are better, but said it should be based on how I feel. However, I was also using a testosterone cream when I was using only one pump. I have not adjusted the testosterone dosage and my libido is gone. This may sound like a silly question, but should I increase the testosterone as well?
Thanks for your advice.
