My dog has scratched my arm where my nexplanon is

My dog has scratched my arm where my nexplanon is inserted. The area has become sore and tender to touch. I noticed it has moved down and to the side a little bit. I am having severe headaches and not sleeping now. It’s due to come out in July of 2019. I have no health insurance. Should I go get it looked at or wait to see if it goes away after a week. It’s been now day 4 of not being able to sleep and my headaches are starting to get worse.

Hi! I got my implant about a month ago and my arm has a constant itch to it just where the nexplanon is. The implantion also feels like it is super close to the surface of my skin. When you rub your fingers crossed it, it feels like it is buldged out and can be see where it is at. What could be the cause of this?

Hi, I ve been using the contraceptive Nexplanon for about a year and a half (and had been using implanon before this). I woke up this morning with my arm tingling and itchy and there is a small lump at the end of where the implant is. I was just wondering if this is something I should be concerned about, as it s never happened before.
