I had the nexplanon fitted last week.

I have a funny feeling it may have snapped.

when I straighten my arm, it curves into my muscle.
When I bend my arm, it goes straight?

It feels bumpy and painful in the very centre of it.

I can't find the top end (only the end near the scar), so I can't grab it to see if it raises in the middle.

If it has snapped, is it possible to get pregnant?
Also, do you think it has snapped?

What has it been like for others, who have had theirs snap?

Thanx in advance smile

I would definitely advise going back to whoever fitted it as I don't think it will be effective snapped? (I hope mine doesn't!) It may get infected or move somewhere it shouldn't I am not sure.

It's VERY unlikely to have snapped - it's pretty flexible. If you're concerned then go back to where you had it fitted and ask their opinion.
