The advice that is given to couples about having sex in early pregnancy after a miscarriage is to avoid penetrative sex, and to use other forms of love-making for the first trimester (the first 12 weeks). Other internal forms of stimulation should also be avoided, as direct contact with the cervix could precipitate a miscarriage. Although orgasm does cause the uterus to contract, this should not cause the cervix to open, and should be perfectly safe.
