I've knocked my nexplanon implant!

I've been moving some furniture round tonight and lifted a heavy cupboard which knocked and sort of scraped across the inside of my arm where my implant is. I felt it move <boak> and now I'm really worried I could have dislodged or broken it. My arm feels weird, sort of tingly and heavy now, not sure if thats from the lifting or the implant. I can still feel it under my skin but it feels like its closer to the surface now and I don't know whether I need to get it checked or not. Anyone had this and what happened?

Hiya. Your implants fine. My mother forced me to have one put in while i was still in school because we didnt talk and she didnt know if i was sexually active or not.
Anyway friends in school found it really intresting as theyd never seen one before, and theyd constantly pull on it and poke it in the end it ended up bent, near enough snapped in my arm and was still working, but if it puts your mind at ease get it checked but im 100% sure if mine still worked after being nearly snapped, a knock wont affect yours smile

Thanks for the reassurance, its fine today but I have a massive bruise there from where I knocked it! I can feel the implant and its not bent or broken so I'm pretty sure its ok. I have no idea how you coped with your friends pulling yours, I nearly puked when I felt mine move!
