How To Deal With A Bluish Forearm After Implant Birth Control?
I think I have a 3 year old implant, then it’s a bit blue. r n
Implanted contraception is a contraceptive that contains hormones to prevent pregnancy. KB implants are usually placed in the upper arm. First, a local anesthetic will be performed in the vicinity of the insertion site, then cut a little and then insert the implant KB with a special tool. Then closed the gauze. If necessary, 1 or 2 sutures are sutured at the incision site, although this is rarely done.
The thing to note is that during the healing period, you must keep the place of installation clean and change the bandage every day for 3-5 days.
Side effects that can occur in implant birth control are pain and swelling at the implant birth control site. sometimes you may also see slightly blue skin at the installation site. This condition generally gets better after a few days. You can do the following tips:
Cold compress at the installation site
Do not massage the birth control implant site
Change the bandage regularly
You don't need to worry first, but if within 3-5 days your complaints haven't gone away or the bleeding doesn't stop, I suggest that you go to a doctor or midwife who has implanted birth control so that proper treatment can be done.
