Boric Acid Suppositories

I used Boric Acid Suppositories for 30 days for BV and they were fantastic! BUT after about 2 weeks the symptoms came back they want me to start another 30 day regimen. I didn't have any side effects whatsoever. I hope this 2nd round takes it away for good! Does anyone know if this is something that can be taken constantly or just during your menstrual cycle. It seems that is when my symptoms are the worse. Thanks!

Re: Boric Acid Suppositories

I quote..

"Boric acid, taken internally, is extremely toxic. If there is an open vaginal wound, a cut or scrape in the vaginal wall, for example, boric acid could enter the bloodstream. This can cause symptoms such as nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. It can also cause dermatitis. More serious side effects, seen in higher concentrations, include kidney damage, acute circulatory system failure and even death."


"Multiple treatment courses using boric acid suppositories can lead to a condition known as chronic poisoning. Unlike acute poisoning where the symptoms are experienced immediately, chronic poisoning builds up slowly over time, with repeated exposure to boric acid. Symptoms include pain, anorexia, gastrointestinal disturbances, weakness, confusion, dermatitis, menstrual disorders, anemia, seizures and hair loss, and the condition can also lead to death. Chronic toxicity has been reported in patients treated for wound infections. However, it could also occur in patients repeatedly treated for vaginal yeast infections, particularly if the area contains a cut or scrape."

You can find more about it online, but it's generally some nasty stuff that has been banned in my own country. You're not even allowed to use it here for killing ants anymore. It used to be considered a relatively benign substance, but has lost that status some time ago.

I would not want it close to my cervix, if I had one.
