So I am reading this TTC book that says to check your prescription meds for safety. To my horror I discover 2 out of 3 of my DH's prescription meds are bad for sperm production and my prescription acne gel is bad while pregnant. I hate this.

You could always check with your doctor and DH's doctor if maybe you can be put on something different that would be more friendly with TTC.

At my last full OB exam the doctor asked me if I was using double BC with my Retin A and was surprised no one had warned me about the potential risk of birth defects. I mentioned in another year I wanted to get pregnant so that prescription went into the trash that day to be safe. Women need to be careful of any thing that can get into the bloodstream through pills or creams. Good topic you brought up. Hopefully there is alternate anxiety medication he may be able to use.

DH is going to get his yearly physical in a week and ask for alternative but actually a lot of doctor as not aware of the less important side effects such as reduced fertility so we will have to do a lot of research ourselves. I am really sad about the face cream though, my skin has been the best ever in over 15 years. I might just apply it to my chin only 2 times a week since this is the only area I have trouble. I have heard conflicting opinions about Retin A so maybe 1-2 times a week on a very small area might be ok.
