Implant worries

I had the implant put in two days ago, and although I can feel it in my arm and all the normal symptoms are there, is it possible to knock it so that it breaks in your arm? I'm terrified that I'll snap it, and I wondered if it's actually possible?

This is a pregnancy forum so, most of us aren't on birth control. There is one for birth control you might get a better response there

I had it before i got pregnant, i only had it a few months as my body didn't react well to it. But it under quiet a bit of skin and also the implant is flexible, it's between muscles so it's highly unlikely that it will snap or anything you should be fine!

It can break. Thats why they're supposed to measure it when they put it in an remove it. Normally though, it has a better chance of breaking during removal. its well protected in your arm.
