I was just wondering if that could be a sign/symptom of pregnancy. I've heard about melasma (the face of pregnancy), but despite its name I heard women can also get it on their arms and abdomens. I've had a few patches on my abdomen that I assumed were birth marks. But now there are more! They're large and a light brown colour. They don't itch, hurt or bleed. They just look unpleasant. The problem is that despite having every symptom going (aside from metallic taste) I'm still getting BFNs. So I don't even know if this is pregnancy related or if all my symptoms are just due to coming off the pill. Can anyone help?! I think I may book an appointment with my dr. If it is melasma, aside from expensive treatments and make up, is there anything I can do?
