Best to speak to your GP or a pharmacist about this.

You’re not supposed to get it wet at the risk of infection that’s why the put waterproof plasters over it. They should have used a bandage over them that you’re allowed to take off that night or the next day. I’d say monitor the site where the implant was inserted over the next few days/weeks. If you notice anything out of the ordinary or are concerned about pain in your arm advise a pharmacist or your doctor. I am not a doctor or nurse that’s just my advice.
