i had the nexplanon implant fitted on the 7th april and now it is the 9th. The pain in the area of insertion is horrible:-( i cant pick anything up without a stabbing pain in the area and there is no sign of the pain subsiding at all. it feels okay in the morning when i wake up but as soon as i stand up and start my morning it starts all over again. its stopping be doing simple things like eating my dinner with a knife and fork or washing my hair. is this normal? if so how long is it normal for? because i am not coping atm:-(

    Hey! I have had an implant for 8 months. When inserted it was not painful, I just had a huuuge black/blue/pink/green bruise and everything dissappeared after a week. I really think you should see a doctor asap, the implant might be in the wrong place.

      They give you pain killers and you literally cant feel anything! I was terrified too, but trust me, its not that big of a deal. And you wont have to live with that stabbing pain, I dont think its normal..

    I have had mine for a year and 2 months and my hurts so bad. My dr kept telling me it was normal. I went to a new one and it is not normal but the earliest I can get in is next week. Now I'm pregnant with this stupid thing. It will hurt so bad that I cry. I would go get it checked...
