Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your case, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.
Although it is most unlikely because of IMPLANON, you need to get it confirmed by clinical check up.

If there is pain, swelling, redness at the site of implanon insertion, and also painful , nodular swelling in the same arm pit it needs treatment.
I will suggest a course of antibiotic AMOXY -CLAV 625mg twice a day for 5 days, and Tab CALPOL 650 mg as needed for pain.

I hope my answer helps you.
Wish you great health.
