Trying to conceive

I have recently stopped taking roaccutane and have to wait at least 1 month before ttc.
I just wondered if anyone out there has taken roaccutane and is now pregnant. Have there been any issues/concerns?
Basically I know that the medication can damage unborn babies-whilst the drug is in your system and I am a bit frightened that if I start ttc after 1 month of stopping the treatment, something could still happen?

Hi I was on roaccutane years ago, I remember them saying not to get pregnant during treatment but I can't remember what they said about how long you needed to leave it after. I was just having a look on google and it appears to recommend leaving to two cycles before trying so two months. Unfortunately that is the only advice I can offer as I only started trying 5 months ago and it was a wee while ago I was on it. If it was me I would try to wait for two cycles just to be sure as it can cause birth defects.
