Hello, well its just to prevent any infection as slight spotting persists for few days and secondly you can become pregnant again if u will not use contraception. So you can have intercourse using condom once bleeding stops
I would advice using barrier contraceptive for 2 weeks. It has been suggested to avoid any chance of infection since mild spotting can be observed for a few days. Also, you might have chances of becoming pregnant if you do not have protected intercourse.
After a miscarriage most gynaecologists advice barrier contraceptive for 2 weeks in view of increased risk of thromboembolism.
Secondly, till the first period occurs the chances of trophoblastic disease can't be ruled out.
If a surgical instrumentation is done there is increased risk of infection in the first few days post miscarriage.
I hope I was able to resolve your query.
