I just found out I was pregnant. I have a long cycle so according to my last period, I should be 5-6 weeks. I have occasionally used topical tretinoin gel (0.025%) probably every other day for the past couple months. I am so worried. I recently moved so I need to find a new OB/Gyn. As soon as I find one and get an appt, I will ask but for now, I wanted to ask here. I heard the oral tretinoin is much worse but topical can still cause defects. I know there's nothing I can do about it now but I was wondering if anyone here has taken that while pregnant?
