Patient :Hi ive been haveing a couple of problems with my left arm the first is about nexplanon a three year birth control inplant. About 3 to 4 weeks ago my implant started feeling weird it started hurting and itching where the implant was inserted(located at inner side of the upper arm) and not only was it painfull the implant moved closer to my skin,to where i could see and i dont think thats right ive had it for a year and 2 months and i never saw it till now. It stoped hurting but today 01-26-14 i noticed it had moved up and to the left alot. And my other problem i think has something to do with my implant because im haveing problems with my left arm upper armpit it hurts alot and its red and swollen. And before this i didnt think any thing of it but right around the time my implant was messing up my left arm about an inch away to the left of where my implant was inserted was also swollen and hurt. And today january 26 the swelling moved now its at my left arm upper arm pit its swollen and red and hurts thanks tina
