Is my Pregnancy Safe? 6 Weeks After Last Dose of Accutane?

Dear Doctors, I took my last dose of Accutane on March 2nd and got my period the next day. My next period was on the 8th of April and I finish on the 15th. Tried to conceive afterwards and just found out last week that I am pregnant! I guess in total I have been off Accutane for 44 days. Any suggestions would be much much appreciated. Thanks

Per the FDA, you should not conceive while actively taking Accutane or for 30 days after stopping the medication. You should be just fine. Have a safe and wonderful pregnancy!
