My Accutane Journey Week 1

My Accutane Journey Week 1

My journey with Accutane

My initial 30 days waiting to start Accutane has finally passed and I started my 1st week of treatment!  Woowho!

Before my appointment at my dermatologist,  I had to get yet another pregnancy test and more blood work to make sure I was in the clear. If you’re a female, you will have to get a pregnancy test each month before starting a new pack of treatment. This is for the safety of an unborn child. Accutane can cause serious damage to a fetus. That’s why you have to ensure NOT getting pregnant while taking this medication. You have to use two forms of birth control throughout your treatment plan.

I just started dating a new guy and have two kids already, so getting pregnant any time soon is definitely not in my plans. Plus my man is deployed at the moment so, no problems there.

Starting up with Accutane Acne Medication

As weird as this may sound but I’m excited to try the most talked about  Accutane!

My journey with Accutane

Starting November 4th, 2014, I am super stoked that I will be able to start the most talked about Accutane System for cystic acne.

Don’t get me wrong, it is a long process to begin this journey.

I had to make an appointment with my dermatologist please see what my options are to get rid of this nasty stuff that is on my face. I am not quite as bad as some people with cystic acne. But I am just a little bit vain. When I do get cystic acne it doesn’t just come one by one it comes by force.

As an Asian descent, we take pride in our skin, hair, nails.

I was blessed as a teenager because I never received any break out with any type of asking. Once I turned 30 though, all hell break loose on my porcelain skin.

I tried the doxycycline tablets. I switch to a non hormonal birth control. I’ve tried the Retin-A micro pump. And then some and then some and then some.
