I Was on Accutane for 6 Weeks Taking 40mg Twice a Week. When Can I Get Pregnant Safely?

I am a 23.year old mom of an 18 month old daughter and went on accutane 6 weeks ago and have now stopped taking it. My dosage was 40mg twice a week. I am now wondering how long to wait before having my next child. I do not want a pregnancy with any complications that pertain to the accutane medication.

The FDA states that you can safely conceive 30 days after your last pill was taken. Have a wonderful and safe pregnancy!
