Safe to take ortho-tricyclen with Accutane? PLEASE READ

I started my Accutane treatment 10 weeks ago (you can check out my log in the personal regimen section) and now I am practically acne-free! What made me break out in the first place was a birth control shot called Depo-Provera. Granted, I've always dealt with acne, but the Depo made me break out horribly (I'm talking 50+ pimples).

My depo has since worn out, and since Accutane requires two forms of birth control, my doc has prescribed me Ortho-tricyclen. She says that it clears skin, but no guarantees on what may intially happen, only that it clears "in the long run".

I CANNOT afford a massive breakout from this birth control. I've just come way too far in my Accutane treatment....so what I'm wondering is ... will the Ortho make me have a breakout?
