Maybe its the birth of the royal baby, but my e-mail at the blog definately has baby fever. Last month I answered questions about acne care during pregnancy. This week I’ve researched best practices for skin care both before and after pregnancy.
Question 1 — “Ive been on Retin A gel for 10 years. We want to start a family, but I am concerned. How long do I have to wait after going off Retin A to be sure its safe for the baby?”
Answer 1- If you take oral Retin A or spironolactone ( a hormone used to treat acne) doctors recommend waiting six months before trying to conceive. However if you used just a topical Retin A, there is no waiting time. Good luck!
