Not taking birth control...

Recommended Posts

I was prescribed Accutane already - I'm starting August 6th. I started taking the BCP weeks ago, but after a bad breakout due to it, I stopped. I'm not sexually active, so there's no chance of pregnancy (if there was, I'd stick with it). I definitely don't want to start that 4-week wait again, so I tell my derm that I'm still on the BCP.

I just want to make sure - the only way they can tell you're off it is if you get pregnant, right? (lol) I know it sounds very far-fetched, but I just want to make sure it's not evident that I'm not taking these pills when I get my blood or urine test the 6th...

Sorry for the weird question, and thanks!

Thanks for asking that cause I have done the exact same thing and was also worried that they might be able to tell and then would refuse me my next prescription. But everyone I have spoken to seems to think that there is no reason they should.
