Welcome to ehealthforum,
Using protection is better as it will avoid chances of infection to you and to the baby. Intercourse should generally be avoided during first and third trimester (especially if you have had previous miscarriages). Few women can have intercourse (safe and not rough) until they start with labour pains. Visit your treating gynecologist/obstetrician for further clarifications.
Take care.
