I was taking antibiotics before I found out I was pg too. I would suggest researching the medication online first. See what it has to say about pregnant women using it. The information should be fairly easy to find. Each acne medication is different. Mine said that it could cause discoloring in the eyes and teeth, but I was so early in the pg that I don't think it did any harm. Good luck and make sure to ask ur dr. about this the next time you see him

Call your pharmacy, tell them you think you may be pregnant, the specific meds you are taking and ask them if it's safe. It's generally quicker to get a hold of the pharmasist than the doctor. And they are just as if not more able to answer any questions you have.
