Sharp pain after getting the contraceptive implant. Is this normal?

I have had the contraceptive implant inserted two days ago and while lifting something heavy I felt a sharp pain that felt like the implant had snapped or the wound through which is was inserted opened- I have checked the wound and it s fine but the rod I need to feel for seems split and not like the full rod that it originally felt like, could my implant have snapped and what are the consequences of this?

Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.
There is possibility of trauma at the site of implanon insertion.
I suggest you to get it examined by a doctor.
Other possibility could be due to ligament tear or tendon injury.
Hope this helps.
