Hi, thank you for asking Healthcare Magic.
Actually, Nexoplanon and Implanon are almost identical. The slight difference is that Nexoplanon can be detected by X-ray because it contains a substance (barium sulphate). But this substance might not produce the symptoms you are having now. These symptoms are common especially within the first 3 months after insertion. You may need to see your doctor if symptoms worsen.

I hope that answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. We will be delighted to answer more questions from you.
I wish you good health
