I got an implanon implant less than a week ago and I've gained 5 pounds. How can I change this and lose the weight?

In brief: Diet and excercise

You'll probably have to increase your exercise and change your diet at the very least.
There are a small number of women who have to have the implanon removed due to excessive weight gain. Consider checking a pregnancy test too especially if you had unprotected sex within the last 2-4 weeks.
