Nexplanon is driving me insane

I had the Implanon implant for 3 years before this nexplanon.
It was great.

I cant say the same about this nexplanon!
I had it put in in september. My arm hurt like hell for days. Gradually died down into a dull ache for a few weeks.
I still get the ache, only randomly, every now and then.

What is bothering me the most is varicose veins!! I never ever ever thought i would have them come the age of 27,

God dammit. I really dont want to get it removed. Only i am terrified of ending up pregnant! I think the injection may be my best bet.

I noticed last night that veins in my stomach, and boobs are looking varicose? Lol
I cant take it.
The pains in my legs are unreal.at times.

Has anyone else experienced varicose veins through nexplanon? If so...did they go once it was removes?
Did it turn into DVT as i keep reading on google?

I too seem to have developed a few varicose veins in one thigh since getting Nexplanon. I'm 25 years old and have had the thing since August. I had I plan on for 3 years and no problems as well!
I've also developed acne randomly throughout the month when I never used to have it. Deep pimples (cystic) that pop up randomly all over! I'm pretty sure it's due to hormone changes...
I also have a severe decrease in libido. Any of the same symptoms for yourself?
Also, spotting that lasts an average of 3 weeks normally. I get about a week for a break.
I'm pretty sure I'm going to have this thing removed soon.
