Birth control and skin pigment changes connected?

Skin pigment + BCP's. The progestational agent in bcp's can often darken skin pigment, and this may not fade when you stop bcp's. Similar to the pigment changes that some women have in pregnancy.
Skin pigmentation. The skin on the face, especially the cheeks can become hyper pigmented or "stained" when on birth control pills. This is potentially increased with exposure to the sun.
