My arm is stinging when I move it near the insertion of my nexplanon I got it done yesterday. Is this normal, also it's bumpy and feels a little weird?

Probably OK: I wouldn't worry at this point about pain at the site of insertion. If it begins to swell, has blood or pus draining from it, the pain increases, you develop fever or you have trouble moving your arm, I'd certainly have it looked at by your doctor. ...Read more

During implanon insertion, dr hit basilic vein and nerve. Its impalpable, should it be removed?

Maybe: If there was large accumulation of blood and swelling at the insertion site the implant may not function normally- it maybe surrounded with blood instead of normal tissue. In this case it should be removed and replaced with another in the other arm. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have sharp strong pains where your implanon is in your arm, it's a reoccurring thing and aches like mad?

What does it mean when you have sharp strong pains where your implanon is in your arm, it's a reoccurring thing and aches like mad?

Implanon pain/ache: Most likely it is due to the implanon putting pressure on a nerve. Try treating it with NSAID like ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) especially when it is aching. If this is not helpful, you should consult the healthcare provider who implanted the implanon. Perhaps it can be repositioned. It would be a shame to not be able to take advantage of this most reliable form of birth control. ...Read more

I think my implanon broke in my arm. Will they have to cut my arm open to get bothered pieces out?

Implants: While a possibility, the likelihood of the implant breaking is very small. The best thing to do would be to have your doctor examine the site. There are imaging techniques such as xray that can identify the implant. Removal would be similar to if the implant were intact if indeed it is broken. ...Read more

Last night i got the implanon put in my arm when will i be safe to have unprotected sex?

Depends: If you had your Implanon inserted within 5 days of when your last period began, it is effective immediately. At any other point during your menstrual cycle, a backup form of birth control (i.e. Condoms) should be used for 7 days. If you are unsure about the timing of insertion, use backup birth control for 7 days to be on the safe side. ...Read more
