If I bend my arm then it sends a sharp pain through my arm like I am being stabbed because the implant is pushing on the scar from the needle when they put it in. I don't Medicaid or Medicare because my mom kicked me out of the house and I have no job and I'm homeless so I can't go to a clinic and ask. Is there any way I could accidentally get pregnant.
It sounds like it is activating a nerve when you bend your arm. It may be that it is pushing against your skin and the nerves in the skin are triggered. It shouldnt cause permanent harm, it is just a bit uncomfortable. You should qualify for medicaid if you are homeless with no income-you just need to apply. As long as the implant isnt overdue to be replaced, you should not get pregnant. Chances are less than 1%.
