FINALLY My Accutane Experience (Because People Asked)
My little post Accutane toddlers are 4 years, 11 months, 3 weeks & 1 day old.
I have posted about Accutane and birth defects once before. How I was on Accutane and started trying to conceive again 3 months after taking a TTC AKA ‘trying’ break for me to attempt to help my skin out for a short while. I won’t lie, it was a decision I would forever regret, but hasn’t anything to do with the trying to conceive after Accutane part.
If you read my blog you can easily see that my twins are beautiful, healthy, perfect little ladies.
The reason that I feel this way is because of a totally different effect that I personally suffered. But since I get messages about it both here and on You Tube, whether or not I was happy with the outcome as far as my skin was concerned, I figured, let me finally tell you all about that aspect of things. Watch the below video, as it does make me emotional to talk about, and I don’t feel like re-hashing things via words when I already said pretty much everything in my most recent You Tube video below.
As far as my post about Accutane and how long it takes to get out of your system, and how long after Accutane is it safe to get pregnant you can click on the link for all of that information and conversation on that subject, plus read many comments. We did not conceive the 3rd month, which is when we started trying with Clomid and inseminations, but the next month we were double blessed with twins Annie & Allie. It would have been safe should I have started to try again sooner post Accutane, however, 3 months was my personal ‘comfort zone’ despite the true blue facts. Again, if this interests you just click the pink link to read all about it. I know there isn’t too much information out there about Accutane use before pregnancy. I know because I looked for such information myself way back when.
OK, so that is my story. I apologize if it scares anybody. It is NOT my intention. This doesn’t happen to everybody, but it did happen to me, and now I forever live with the consequences of taking Sotret AKA Accutane, though I still do understand how it feels to hate your skin (and other areas, as I have problems with many areas of myself, and it affects your daily life in so many bad ways.) But ya’ll asked for the story, so there it is.
