Hi hun,

I've never tried it, but I suggest you go talk to your health specialist.

I have heard pretty bad things about Implanon. Apparently there have been lots of law suit cases of women getting pregnant on it, as well as, the line being injected incorrect and leaving scars.

I have implanon, have had it for about two months now. You should basically be able to feel the outline of the rod, and I know mine does not feel "bumpy". You should deffinately talk to you doctor and make sure it didnt break. Is there any pain that you notice beyond the soreness of the injection?

I have had the implanon bar for about 3 months and ever since my second month mine is slighlty bumpy also. I dont think anything is wrong but i guess im pretty chill and choose to believe everything is fine.
I havnt gone to the doctor but if you are going to then i would love to hear what they say. But im sure its all good.
