I will call the clinic tomorrow for an appointment and ask about this over the phone, hopefully they will be able to tell me whether I should do something about it urgently, but I thought just in case there are medics/nurses/med students or people with similar experiences on here, maybe you could put my mind at rest.
My Nexplanon implant seems to have moved into my armpit. I first felt a slightly painful lump in my armpit, then checked where the implant should be and found it's not there anymore. I can't feel the precise shape of the implant in my underarm but I'm pretty sure it's there.
I also think it has only recently moved, as about a month ago it was in its place and now I can feel it in its new position and I am concerned about it continuing to move and it being difficult to locate by the time I get to the clinic. Also I am worried it might be extra painful and difficult to extract from this new position, and worried about damaging a nerve on extraction, am I being paranoid?
I am wondering whether I should go to the sexual health clinic or obtain a referral for somewhere else, as this sounds like a non-standard case.
