Exclamation Women- need help birth control wise

Has anyone here had Implanon? I just had it put in my left arm today, good fir three years now

But wow I'm really in alot of pain, can't bend my arm and it got all bloody, not to surprised there. They did a good job of numbing it to put it in, took 6cc of numbing to get it all ready before putting it in.

This happened this morning and was fine, very little pain until two hours ago.
It leaked blood and was really hurting so I un wrapped it and put a clean bandaid and re wrapped it! Feels a bit better but Ughh

I don't know how I'm going to clean oliver's pasture or feed tomorrow...let alone work him! This should be interesting to see how it works out.

Any suggestions, people who have had this type of birth control ...help!?

Whaaa? Your arm is leaking because of BC? Erm...., I think I'll stick to being abstinent. Lol.
Unless it helps with hormone/monthly troubles

Only because she chose a variety that is implanted into your arm. Other forms won't have that side affect (although they may very well have others).

I never tried Implanon but if you are in serious pain that is not going away, call your Dr. They should be able to advise you over the phone as to if it's normal or not.

I hated BC, never found one that worked without making me feel psycho or just plain sick so I opted for the permanent variety after my 2nd kiddo was born.

Contact the physicians office and let them know what is happening....they can advise whether that fallsinto normal after effects or is something to be alarmed by. Was the insertion point actually cut.or was it more of a large bore injection? Did they use any skin glue to help close or just bandage?
I'm not much help as this is one method I never used....I kicked around with oral bc and an iud before I finally just had DH gelded lol.

Contact your doctor, I have a nexplanon implant and I took the bandage off 4hrs after I had the implant put in even though I was supposed to leave it on for 2 days (I hated the feeling of the bandage). I then rode and did stable chores that evening (so about 8hrs after implant).

Apart from a bit of bruising round the site of the implant and being unable to sleep on that arm for a couple of days I have never had a problem with it.

For my implant they gave 1 small numbing injection, then a small incision and slipped the implant under the skin then wrapped it.
There was no blood and very little weeping!

My daughter in law had one put in about 3 months ago, and she loves it. It was a slit about 1/2" in her arm. I remember her saying it was sore, but nothing too bad at all. I would also suggest you call the MD and ask. Especially since it is Friday, and it it gets worse it could be a really long weekend for you. It may be infected.
Wallaby and themacpack like this.

I have it and love it. My arm was sore for a couple days but the second day it was much better..
Bleed really bad at first. I would probably hold off at least another day before riding, let the wound get all the way closed

Thanks guys, sleeping wasn't to bad, woke up and can bend my arm! Feeling much better! Whew!

Themackpack- no cutting involved they had to numb it twice for me and then it was a huge needle the stuck in under the skin and the birth control thing came out after threy "plunged" it into it...when I put a clean bandaid on it the hole was pretty big :( lol

Feeling much better though!
Thanks guys!
