Pregnancy After Accutane
Female patients are advised not to get pregnant for 1 month after discontinuing Isotretinoin (Accutane) therapy. This ensures the drug is cleared from the body and the medication does not effect the fetus.
Accutane and pregnancy
The iPledge program which regulates Accutane through the FDA asserts that patients should not get pregnant for 30 days after stopping Accutane. Following this guideline would be your best, safest bet.
