I wouldnt worry about it. Implanon can cause irregular bleeding like that and it might take a little while for it to settle down. Youve ot to remember that theres a lot of hormones being used and its bound to upset things a little.

As for your arm hurting, mine hurt for about two weeks and after that it was fine...if it isnt getting any better within in the next week then you can contact your gp if you are concerned.

Hope everything gets sorted.
