Did you get pigmentation on your skin whilst being pregnant?

I have got a few pigmentation spots on my face whilst being pregnant this time. Have not had it in other pregnancies. Was wondering if this is quite common in pregnancies? Does it disappear after having baby, is there anything I can put on it to help reduce the pigmentation marks?

hi kiran have not heard about anyone getting skin pigmentations before think it must be where your hormones changes during pregnancy hopefuly they will go after you have had your baby-as far as i know there is nothing you can do about them unless you see you dr and see what they say-littlowl

Thanks littleowl,I will see doc after pregnancy if it has not disappeared. Hopefully it does, not too bad at the moment, just do not want it to get worse. I have heard it has to do with hormone levels too. Silly hormones, lol.

yes. i only have one kid and during my pregnancy the back of meck, my knees and my armpits got so dark.i almost freak out seeing all the pigments that i hate a lot. i have a fair complexion so the darkness that developed in those areas are very visible. when i gave birth, some of them vanished but there are still pigment remnants in my armpits and the bask of the neck. they say it's some kind of hormonal imbalance.
