It takes approximately 1 month after stopping therapy for Isotretinoin to no longer be in the circulation. You should continue with 2 forms of contraception whilst taking the medication and continue for 1 month after stopping Isotretinoin.
If you follow these guidelines you will safely be able to have a child when the time is right for you after completing Isotretinoin therapy.
