Acnetane & planning pregnancy

Dear Cyberdoc

I ve been put on a 3 month course of Acnetane to clear up my skin.

I will be finishing my last month of supply of Acnetane during April. My husband and I want to try for our second baby late this year/beginning next year. Though I do know that Acnetane/roaccutane carries big consequences and deficiencies (sp).

Can you please advise if this would be a suitable time to plan our second pregnancy?

If you are finishing the course in APril, any time after July would be fine.

Best wishes
