How soon can I get nexplanon removed? It's not right for me!

So, November 21st 2014, I got the nexplanon implant birth control so that I would be able to be with my partner without any worry of children. It seemed like the perfect decision at the time. Three years from now I will still not be ready most likely and I don't have to remember to take a pill every day or anything. What a dream, right! No. I was very wrong. The nexplanon may work for some people but for me, so far, it has been terrible. I know that it's new chemicals in my body but I've been vomiting non stop. I can't get out of bed anymore and I'm sleep deprived due to mind numbing headaches. I've also been bleeding everyday but that's not really what worries me the most. I can deal with the bleeding but with the vomiting and headaches? No! That's not what I signed up for. So my question is how soon can I get this removed? I have an appointment for a check up on December 4th but will I have to wait for my arm to heal up before they can numb it again and take it out? Please help. Thank you.

    Christ how awful you are sufering. I never had a period for 8 months whilst being on it. I constantly had numbing headaches and always feeling light headed, I lay in bed and the room was spinning and my anxiety was 10 times worse. It never worked for me so glad i've had it removed as i feel more human having periods again.

    I would make a appointment to see a doctor/nurse and go from there

      Omg no person should be forced, If he was a gentleman he would of not done this.

      Get it taken out if this isn't for you then do it, If he truly loves you he will stand by you
