Study design
Purpose of the study
Prevention
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Concealment is done by central randomisation by the computer .Entry of a woman’s initials, ID number, and date of birth on to a dedicated computer on the clinic, automatically generated the allocation group together with a study number, which was then recorded on the outcome sheet. These data could, if necessary, be verified against the computer randomisation at a later time.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)
Who is / are masked / blinded?
The people receiving the treatment/s

The people assessing the outcomes
The people analysing the results/data

Summary
Brief summary
we study novel approaches in the management of ovarian hyperstimulation in women suffering with Polycystic ovarian disease (PCO) and undergoing Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).we compare the effect of intravenous calcium and oral cabergoline on the severity of ovarian hyperstimulation and outcome of ICSI as regard the pregnancy rate and miscarriage rate
