KenCat Says:

I took accutane as an early teenager and sense then my period cramps got progressively worse I am 20 years old now and I have been put on prescription pain killers for my cramps. I also have had at least one ovarian cyst. From my research it seems that the two could be linked. I am 100% positive that Accutane made my skin highly sensitive (I must wear sun block every day year round or I burst into flames like a vampire). Could it have also cause my severe cramps? Also, I am in a serious relationship, which has made me wonder if I may have trouble getting pregnant in the future. Does anyone have any knowledge pertaining to this?

Hello, KenCat! How are you?

The long-term problems that may be caused by Accutane are still under dispute. Have you consulted your doctor? There is a chance it may have played a role in your issues, but it could also be due to something else. You may never really know for sure.

As to fertility, that is something that most doctors aren't going to want to look into, unless you actually have trouble getting pregnant later.

How do you know you have a cyst?
