Everyone knows it how the conception happens. When male sperm fertilizes female egg then conception happens. After conception the fertilized egg gets implanted in the uterus. When you miss your periods, you come to know that you are pregnant. The fertilized egg is known as embryo, which develops further into fetus. To protect the fetus the amniotic cavity develops around it. This amniotic cavity carries all the nutrition that are required for the normal growth of the baby. This amniotic cavity also covers the cervix and hence there are no chances of you getting pregnant again even if you have sex.
As the mucus layer is there surrounding the embryo there is no chance that seminal or vaginal fluid will cause any infection to the embryo. The mucus makes sure that the embryo is safe inside the uterus and not in contact with outer world in any way. Thus sex during pregnancy will not cause any harm to your unborn child.
