In brief: No
Intercourse unless associated with an std will no cause infertility.
Untreated infections from std's can lead to infertility. Summary...No...Having sex after a miscarriage will not lead to infertility.

We advise patients to avoid intercourse until post-procedure bleeding, pain, fever or spotting has resolved.

In brief: Yes
It is possible to get an infection after a procedure.
Having sex itself is not a problem but sometimes if the area is not healed it can lead to scarring inside the uterus or fallopian tubes. In general, it should be fine.
