Implanon is killing my arm. What could be causing it ?

I have had implanon since oct of 2010 so for about 4 in a half months and my arm keeps killing me. I asked my planned parent hood dr but they never give me an answer. It hurts to keep my arm bent even for 2 min. It seems to get worse when I stress out which I do and have had high blood pressure problems because of it. Is it normal to cause such pain where sometimes I can t even bend my arm because of the pain from it. I can t use any other form of bc so this was my last resort. What could be causing it? Could it be broken? Can they break? And if so what would cause it to do so? Please help. Thank you, Sarah

Hi Sarah,
Pain at the insertion site is a very common complaint with implanon.If you're in so much distress,i suggest you get it checked whether the needle is in the correct position or broken.Otherwise just have it removed.Take a break for a few weeks and get a new one .
