I just had nexplanon inserted today. I've never been on birth control before but I just had DS 8 weeks ago and I want to wait at least two years before we ttc again so I'm really nervous.

Anyway, how long should my arm be numb and is swelling normal?

Ugh I regret that thing so bad, turned out to be allergic to it broke out in hives around it. The doctor said he never seen anyone react like I did. I had it removed 12/2012 the scar tissue still itches like crazy to this day. Everyone else I know who has this loves it.

I had it for 6 years. (First for 3, second for 3)
Loved it. But later found out it was bad for me because I had low estrogen levels and that is why I gained a lot of weight.
I recommend looking into that. Find out if you have low estrogen :)
