One month after stopping isotretoin - because isotretoin is a potential terratogenic drug . It takes 4- 5 days after stopping the drug when blood levels are not present and 10 day when all the drugs metabolites are excreted in urine
It is ISOTRETINOIN and not ISOTRETOIN

After stopping isotretinoin blood levels are not found in 5 days therefore anytime after taking one month can be considered
Better to avoid pregnancy for atleast 4 weeks but if possible better to avoid 9 to 12 weeks
Minimum 1 month, better if 3 months
I think your query is related ISOTRETINON.. Isotretinoin is a drug used to treat severe acne that hasn't responded to other treatments. It may be prescribed for other uses, including other skin problems and certain kinds of cancer. This drug is a vitamin A derivative (retinoid), so your body reacts to it in a similar way that it does to vitamin A. WAIT FOR TWO MENSTRUAL CYCLES. THAN PLAN FOR PREGNENCY.
It is recommended to plan pregnancy 3 months after stopping the the drug.
