Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
two hundred women at risk of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome during ICSI cycles will be randomly scheduled into two equal groups. In group A(100 patients), (Diosmin group), 2 tab every 8 hs Diosmin ( 500mg) will be given from the day of ovum retrieval and for 14 days plus 1 tab/day Cabergoline( 0.5 mg) will be given at day of HCG injection and for eight days. ; while in group B (100 patients) (control group) 1 tab/day Cabergoline( 0.5 mg) will be given at day of HCG injection and for eight days.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
odd-numbered patients (group A) will receive 2 tab every 8 hs Diosmin (500mg)(Daflon) will be given from the day of ovum retrieval and for 14 days plus 1 tab/day Cabergoline( 0.5 mg) will be given at day of HCG injection and for eight days.;
while even-numbered patients (group B) (control group) will recieve 1 tab/day Cabergoline( 0.5 mg) will be given at day of HCG injection and for eight days.

Statistical methods / analysis
Data obtained will be statistically analyzed using The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS, Chicago, USA) software version 15.0 for Windows. Results will be expressed as mean +/- SD, numbers and percentages. Means will be compared using the paired student’s t test while categorical data will be compared using the chi-square test with Yates' continuity correction. A p value of less than 0.05 is considered statistically significant

sample size calculation is according to the following formula:

N = 2Standard deviation X K / E2


*Standard deviation: population of previous literature
*K : constant (7.8) from statistical table
*E2: minimal change in mean that would be clinical
