Second day of period w/ Accutane?

Recommended Posts

How come my dermatologist told me I can only start taking accutane the 2nd day of my period? Why is this? I have it sitting in front of me, and I am dying to start taking it. I don't want to hold off anymore.. I've been waiting almost two months. Will this really make a difference? confused.gifeusa_shifty.gif

Thanks in advance eusa_doh.gif

It's so that they can be sure you're not pregnant. If you got pregnant during the ovulation prior to beginning your tane course, a urine pregnancy test almost definitely come back negative. Most of those tests only work after you've missed a period, although I think there's a new one on the market that's supposed to work prior to the first missed period. berry
