My girlfriend got pregnant 2 months after taking accutane

my girlfriend got pregnant 2 months after taking accutane. we dont want to have an abortion. and we were wondering what the chances were that the baby was ok. the box says that 1 month after you are off accutane it is out of your system. she is 15 and in athletics. she runs everyday and we were wondering if that sped up the amount of time in which the accutane got out of her system. can anyone help me? she got off at the end of january and we think she got pregnant at the end of may. we had 3 positive pregnancy test june 24th. is she ok?? PLEASE HELP ASAP!! :(

she should talk to her ob about this. but in my opinion (and i am NOT a doctor) if she quit taking it in january the baby should be fine. but she really should talk to her ob and have tests done to be 100% sure.

just make sure she discloses the information to her ob.

I think your girlfriend should be fine. Depending on how far along she is in her pregnancy, the accutane was probably out of her system for at least 3 or 4 months. According to the drug information, after 1 month off the drug, pregnancy is okay. good luck!
