thank you for your query.
Masturbation has absolutely no effect on pregnancy.
If at all you are at high risk for abortion, masturbation can stimulate uterine contractions easily.
But as you mentioned, the baby was already dead inside, which is known as a missed abortion.
causes for missed abortion can be genetic causes, infections, auto immune reasons, hormonal imbalances, uterine abnormalities in shape and size etc.
You need to have complete evaluation for this.
Do not worry unnecessarily as masturbation is absolutely not related to all this.
take care

Thanks for the query.

Usually masturbation will not affect the fertility or pregnancy.
But sometimes excessive masturbation can lead to release of prostaglandins that can lead to premature uterine contractions. But this is a rare occurrence. So better to rule out other possibilities for this.
You plan unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation which will increase the possibility of pregnancy. And this time you continue the pregnancy under cover of progesterones with your doctor's advice which will decrease the chances of miscarriage.
Take care.
