welcome to healthcare magic.

i will be glad to be of assistance.

acutret contains isotretinoin. isotretinoin is a retinoid.

while you are taking isotretinoin you should not get pregnant, if you get pregnant the baby may have birth defects. hence you should use double contraception while being on isotretinoin to make sure you do not get pregnant.

isotretinoin doesnt make you get pregnant.

so please be careful regarding that, and you can safely join your husband.

please let me know if you have any queries.
