Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Sequential numbered opaque envelopes containing the subject allocation are held by the head research nurse and opened at the time of ultraound scan showing either 2 or 3 leading follicles
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Computer generated, adaptive biased coin randomization schedule stratified by women's age (35 or less and greater than 35) and number of follicles (2 or 3)
Masking / blinding
Blinded (masking used)
