      I’m not sure if this is the correct board for this topic, but since it’s related to birth control it felt like the best fit. Has anyone else experienced Melasma as a result of their birth control and sun exposure? Have you found any solutions to the issue (aside from sunscreen and other topical cosmetic changes)? I’m curious if anyone has seen this with specific birth control types. As someone who was on birth control from ages 17-22, I never experienced this issue until I went back on birth control at age 26 and used a different brand. I’d love to hear any insights from others who struggle with this!

          Hey KH,

          I’ve noticed definitely a change in my skin while on birth control. I didn’t have patches but I did have similar ache, discolored patches. I went to an endocrinologist who did a hormone panel and that seemed to have helped shed some light on what was going on internally.
