Using acne products is sort of like dying your hair during pregnancy
Theyre not sure of how much of the chemicals is absorbed and if they harm the baby etc. Different drs have different takes on if theyre okay to use or not. The best advice i can give you is to tell your dr your using it, and use it after your out of the first trimester because thats when the anatomy is forming.
I use stridex pads occasionally because i get acne a lot ): it *****.

Hi.  Any medication you ingest for acne is not recommended when pregnant.  However, things like proactive are up for debate.  Mostly the ingredients shouldn't be harmful but the company recommends you run it by your doctor before using it.  goo dluck
