Has anyone had a problem with melasma on Aviane?

Melasma (freckles or darkening of facial skin especially under the eyes) is a frequent side effect of all oral contraceptives.

There's not much you can do to prevent it other than stop taking Aviane. The melasma usually fades after a few months.
You could see your doctor for a skin bleaching cream if it is particularly bothersome.Sunscreen is important to stop it getting worse.
