Nipple pain: Nexplanon is a Progesterone only method so breast and nipple pain is not a side effect. There are a variety of over the counter nipple creams at any pharmacy since this is a common complaint in post partum women. If this does not solve the problem schedule a visit with your obgyn for an examination
