I got my first birth control implant three days ago, and have now taken off the bandages. I can see where it was inserted, and I felt it on the day before it was bandaged, but it's now about an inch further up my bicep away from my elbow. It's at the same depth I think, and I've only had slight tingles in my arm, but I'm worried in case it's not meant to move at all? Please tell me if I should see the doctor, or if it is still effective.
I have had Implanon 3 times, (the predecessor to Nexplanon) . One of my implants moved, however it did not move upwards.. mine shifted downwards. I did think my first one moved, but when I got it checked out, it was fine. Is it burning or irritated at all? If so, definitely call! (Note: soreness is pretty standard). You may want to call the physician that did your implant and let them know your concerns, best of luck! .
