I've had the birth control implanon in my arm for about 3-4 months and everything has been great except recently I've been getting pains. I went to my doctors and she reassured me it was okay because I wasn't swollen or red... but that seems strange to me, because the day after the visit I noticed its bruised slightly where the rod is. There is still pain and sometimes it goes to my hand as well. I am VERY cautious about these minor things after having complications with every other birth control. Has anyone else experienced this??
