Unhappy ProActiv While Pregnant?

Has anyone used or is using Proactiv while they are pregnant? I forgot to ask my doctor the other day if it was safe for me to use.

My OB told me it was not a good idea. Every doc may have different opinions though. I wish I could use it. Oh, just in case you can't, I have found that goats milk soap works great too.

Does it have salicylic acid (sp?)? If so, not supposed to use that. Don't know about other ingredients specific to Proactiv.

Where do you get goats milk soap from? I have been trying everything and nothing is helping!

I used it with my pregnancy. No problems here.

My OB said not to. I had awful acne from being on progesterone for 2 years Luckliy the acne disappeared (as my doc said it would) in my second trimester.
My skin's pretty sensitive and not oily, I just got acne from how wacked my hormones were. I had the best luck with really gentle cleansers and spraying GSE solution on a cottob ball and wiping my face with that. I also tried tea tree but it didn't do much for me.

http://www.windrifthill.com/goatmilksoap.html This is a really good site. I didn't think it was too badly priced either. Cheaper than proactiv for me. I might keep using it after the pg too.

To the PP if you need Goats Soap they sell it at my Farmers market on Sat, and it's 2.50 for an egg shaped one. I will pick it up for anyone, you have to cover shipping though. In a bubble envie it would be cheap. Just if you can't find it, I thought I would offer
