30 yrs old on Accutane

Entries in this blog


Good news!

So I'm pregnant! 14 weeks! My husband and I are thrilled! And to top it off, my skin is perfect - actually glowing! I don't know if this is because I was on accutane a year ago or my body just likes the hormones of a healthy pregnancy but whatever the reason, I'll take it. I'll never regret going on accutane after my miscarriages and taking a year off from trying to get pregnant. In my year off from trying and during my time on accutane, we traveled like crazy and I got in shape - began running 30km a week! I think things just worked out. Now the timing of this pregnancy feels so right and we couldn't be happier. Good luck to everyone!





Well, it's back ...but not that bad

So I've been off accutane since July and the pill since September and I've started to break out again. My acne is clearly hormonal and comes just before my period. However, it's just a few (3-5) little whiteheads here and there - nothing compared to before accutane. It's a little annoying because I was so used to being clear and not worrying about my skin. I've started to use salicyclic acid again day and night. We are still trying to have a baby so I can't use anything else (like Differin or go back on the pill). Oh well! As I said, it's nothing like it was before accutane when I had tons of deep cysts and big whiteheads. It's just annoying little pimples but I realize that it's totally hormonal so there's not much I can do but hope that I get pregnant soon!
