Hi there, i am a female on my periods currently. i have an implant and it's my third year having it. today as i inserted a tampon could feel big lump, thought it was a clot, took a mirror to check and it was just like some tissue had swollen?

Consult: You will need to consult your GP. From your description no diagnosis could be made. It can be abscess, if it painful. Clot? Is the implant in your arm? Should be removed and changed every 3 years.
