Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.

Your baby should be fine. It's recommended that women not get pregnant for 30 days after stopping roaccutane. Actually most of the drug is out of your system within a shorter time, since the half life (time for half of the drug to be eliminated from the body) is 2-4 days. By 30 days after stopping, there is no significant amount of roaccutane in your body. The egg that got fertilized didn't start developing until after your period of June 5, so there was no exposure to roaccutane. Best regards.
