In brief: No!!
It is harmful during pregnancy.
The fda categorizes Accutane as a pregnancy category x, meaning that serious problems could occur if this medication is used during pregnancy. Accutane has been shown to cause miscarriages and severe birth defects.

In brief: No
Accutane is absolutely not to be used within one year before pregnancy.
It can cause serious birth defects. Usually most women who take it and are sexually active are on highly effective birth control, like the pill (which also helps with resolving acne).
