isotrin is category X drug in pregnancy,
means there is evidences of teratogenicity in both animal studies and human studies,
as this drug is well known to causes preterm labor, miscarriage, birth defects etc,
you better consult gynecologist,
discuss this issue with her and then with her advice you can go for termination,
and try to use contraceptives one month before to one month after treatment of isotrin.
take care.
