I have the same issue, only they are also on my arms and all over my stomach and super dark red ones too, its so hideous! I did a lot of research online and I guess this stuff called Bio Oil which they at drugstore.com for like 12 bucks is supposed to be awesome. I guess a lot of body builders use it but all these question sites I looked at showed most people using it really saw results, I was gonna try and order some today.

My stretch marks disappeared completely a long long time ago. Maybe this is because I have a pale complexion (if so, I can finally see one positive about the paleness of my skin, which otherwise I have always disliked!).

Yup what she said - they do lighten up and fade over time. As you firm up they are less noticeable but for the most part, they are just part of life. I have seen plenty of women AND men with stretch marks - kinda hard to avoid if your skin type isn't super flexible and you have kids, grow real quick/bulk up (like some of the weight lifter types).
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
I have horrendous stretch marks from my inner thighs all the way down to behind my knees and on my hips. They range from white to dark pink. I have tried using Vitamin E directly on my skin, and it seems to help a little - although its very sticky and makes my legs feel horrible. Does anyone have any tips to get rid of these stretch marks??
