For example, in couples randomised differences between women in trials and those to IVF or ICSI it may be more efficient to in the general population. Exclusions after trial delay randomisation until after oocyte recovery entry represent a further source of bias within so that women who have failed to respond to an RCT as any erosion over the course of the gonadotrophin stimulation are not included.

Investigators can also do secondary analy- on to allow live birth per couple to be used ses, preferably pre-planned based on only those as an outcome. For menorrhagia trials, 80% of participants who fully complied with the trial pro- re-treatments occur within 2 years, making this tocol (per protocol) or who received a particular an acceptable duration for follow-up in the first GYNAECOLOGY AND INFERTILITY 353 instance. In pragmatic trials it up to 5 years would be ideal as many women is often important to distinguish those women could expect the effects of their treatment to wane who no longer wish to continue with the allo- over time and long-term complications of therapy cated treatment from those who wish to terminate to surface. This would appear to be equally their involvement with the trial and do not wish to true for urogynaecology trials. For termination of be contacted for follow-up or have questionnaires pregnancy, follow-up has to be kept short as the sent to them. Hopefully the numbers in this lat- loss to follow-up is high and many women may ter group should be small but their wishes should not wish to be contacted at a later date. This This is an important aspect of the trial and errors obviously raises significant ethical, logistic and here can lead to significant bias. As mentioned financial issues which may well need to be taken above, analysis should be by intention to treat. Each woman should be analysed as though she had received the intervention to which she had DATA COLLECTION been randomised. This minimises any bias due Data in a trial are usually collected from sources to non-random removal of participants from such as case notes, local clinic databases and the trial.
