Yes. Rarely.: You don't mention where you saw the iinea nigra.. If the skin darkening isn't in the middle of your lower abdomen, it's technically not "lina nigra" Linea nigra is caused by an increase in melanocyte-stimulating hormone.

Is it possible to have linea nigra w/o being pregnant? Lmp 10/28/12 no sex since 9/2 even w/ that took a planb. So what's the deal?
Could be hormonal: A linea nigra (literally "black line") can run either upward or downward (or both) from the belly button. Do you take birth control pills? They raise your hormone levels, like pregnancy does, and can cause linea nigra. If not, you could be secreting abnormal levels of hormones from your adrenal gland (or elsewhere), and you should see your doctor for lab tests. ...Read more
