uhm 1 youre not married therefore you should not be trying to get your GF pregnant

and chances are she does not want to be pregnant.

use a condom.

Wow gbaby, assuming a bit much there? I don't think it's up to you to decide when and how other people have a family.

I'm not trying to be snarky but seriously, the guy just wants to know that in case something happens (I'm sure you know that no birth control other than abstinence is 100%) should he be worried about the health of his child.

Now geoc,

As far as I know, there is no risk if the male is taking it. If you guys are indeed trying, I would wait until your course of Accutane is done. But PLEASE, do not take my word for it. Do some research online and definitely ask your doc.

I hope that helps you.

I TOTALLY agree with everything you said Skylyre. Obviously I don't think that someone should get his gf pregnant if she doesn't share the same wants, but saying that you "should be married" before having a baby is your own opinion, and not everybody agrees with it. Infact, some people don't even believe in marriage.

If you're on Accutane and get a girl pregnant, the baby could suffer birth defects. Also, Accutane stays in your blood for a while after cessation, so you should have protected sex for a couple of months following your treatment just to be on the safe side. Additionally, I've heard that males have to sign the iPledge booklets which can only mean that they are agreeing to have safe sex.
