It can take ages in some people. I'm nearly 7 months pp and still have a really really faint line. I am quite pale though and it was quite dark in pregnancy.



I don't know any methods of how to make it go faster, I just guessed it faded over time.

The linea negra takes time to go away. Mine was pretty dark last pregnancy (and didn't line up through my belly button!) but eventually faded. This pregnancy i barely have a line at all, even though I thought it would be quicker to show up and darker the second time around. It will fade and there's not much you can do about it, it's from pregnancy hormones.
