Dermatologist 's  Response
Acutret has isotretinoin.
Your dermatologist must have explained you the precautions.
You must not get pregnant while you are taking the capsules and till a month after stopping them.
Isotretinoin is teratogenic (it may cause birth defects in the baby).
There wont be any problem in sexual intercourse though. But you must observe strict contraception. Please note that, this medicine doesnt affect your fertility.
