IVF straight after clomid

I am on my third round of clomid after 2 early miscarriages earlier this year. My doctor has recommended that I start the IVF medication a week before I even know if I'm pregnant in this last trial of clomid. This will be day 21 of this cycle. Is it safe to start this mediation while still finishing the clomid? Could it effect the chances of the clomid being successful this month?

It is not recommended to start IVF treatment on day 21 if you had unprotected intercourse since your last period. You don`t know if you are pregnant and fertility drugs may harm the pregnancy.

Please wait until your period, do a pregnancy test and abstain from unprotected intercourse until the outcome of your IVF treatment is known.
