1 doctor weighed in:
Is my pregnancy safe even though I took a topical solution of retinoic acid for my acne in my 1st week?

In brief: Most likely
Of course there is worry about using retinoic acid in pregnancy and one can never really know.
However, the risk to the baby is exceedingly small if used for such a short time, even in the 1st week.
