Do spironolactone tablets affect pregnancy?

Hello Doctor,my name is Albulena and im 22 years old.I have acne for almost 6-7 years,and i have used many products without results.I lived in Europe before and there my dermatologyst prescreibed me benzol peroxyd,and pills for my hormons(Dostinex and Letrox).When i came here in Bronx i made an apointtment with a dermatolyst on may 1 and first of all she prescribed me benzamycin to whole face at the mornings and to apply Cera Ve AM moisturizer.At night,she prescribed me tretionoin.So, at may 21 i called my dermatologyst and tolld her if she can prescribe me pills because i want faster results,since im getting married after 2 months and i want a clean skin.I told her that i will use the pills with the only condition,to not rist my pregnancy changes.That day,she prescribed me 30 SPIRONOLACTO 100MG tablet, to take once a day in the evening.So,it has been a week that im using these pills.My biggest consern is that i don`t know if these pills are safe?Will i have problems to be a mum soon?Please answer me cause im very worried!

Hi
Thanks for posting on HCM
Spironolactone will not affect your chances of being pregnant.However , it is not advisable when pregnant as it may affect male genital organs formation due to its interference with the hormones necessary for male fetus' to form their genitals.
Pregnancy test will however come positive by the time you miss your period.At this time, the drug can not affect the fetus yet.
I will advise you take the drug as prescribed by your Doctor and stop it when you miss your period and consult your Doctor for the next step.
Hope my answer will help you
Best regards
