I got nexplanon put in today and it is already very bruised around my arm. It's been 12 hours but is still bleeding and is incredibly painful. I can't move my whole arm. Is this normal? If so when will it get better?
It will bleed for probably the rest of the day into the next day and will bruise for about a week and 1/2 (atleast this is how it went for me) but my doctor told me that would happen and it was normal. Also for the pain take tylenol or ibuprofen I took ibuprofen and was fine. I hope this helps
