I had Implanon birth control inserted in my arm about a month ago. I am experiencing numbness?and tingling in the entire back area of my arm in the tricep area. I am concerned. Is this normal? Will it go away? Could it be doing damage to the muscle area? I was on Depo for years prior to this so I should be used to the hormone. Do I have cause for concern?
Pain, numbness, or tingling where the implant was inserted is a side-effect of Implanon.
It is difficult to predict what will happen.
If these symptoms continue, or get worse, you should see your doctor. You may need to have the implant removed.
