how many IU's/mcg are you taking for you trigger shot

So last month I took 10,000iu of Novarel, I just found out yesterday my RE was having me take 500mcg of Ovidrel. I have never used Ovidrel. What does everyone else take, I thought the norm was 250mg. I am a little confused right now.
Also do you have any idea why he would switch? it was one of the nurses who called me, so I have not talked to him yet.
Thank you all soo much, I just want to know what everyone else takes before I call RE and sound like an idiot!

Jen:

Please see my post under Novarel vs. ovidrel. That may be the reason.....

If the package says Ovidrel 250μg/0.5ml that means that μg is micrograms and 1mcg=40IU,

so 250μg (mcg) of Ovidrel = 10,000 international units (IU) of HCG
