It appears that you have developed infection at the site of placing nexplanon. The redness and swelling indicates inflammation and swelling. It is advisable that you visit your physician for an evaluation. There may be a possibility that asepsis may not have be followed and it may have to be removed .
I hope i have answered your query.
wishing you health,
