Prescriptions and pregnancy

Recommended Posts

This will obviously be something I talk to both my OB/GYN and dermatologist about, but my fiance and are beginning to talk about planning a family once we are married. I currently use Retin-A and Finacea. My dermatologist has told me that I should stop both medications if there is any chance I will become pregnant. However, I am a cautious person and am thinking I should stop all medication at least several months before there is even a possibility of becoming pregnant, in order to make sure it is all out of my system. I know my OB/GYN is the best person to consult regarding this question, but I would like to know what others' doctors have recommended in order to be as informed as possible. Of course, I am also concerned about my skin if I should stop all medication at once.
