Can Accutane Affect Future Fertility For Women And Men?

Recommended Posts

I really hope not. I am 24, and if the time would ever be right I definitely want kids... ;/ I just started accutane 15 days ago...;/ So if that was taken away from me, I don't know what I would do... They can't prove if this is true or not... I guess it would make sense when you think about it... It's awful and I really don't even want to think of this possibility since I'm now on the treatment. It's freaking me out. =/

I have not seen any studies to indicate it affects future fertility. Just that it definitely affects a fetus if you get pregnant while on it. Supposedly all traces are gone after a month of discontinuation.

Now that I've said that, I specifically waited until after I was finished having kids because I was paranoid that it could somehow affect them. Could have taken Accutane as a teen but waited until my early 30's after having my children and weaning them.
