Boric Acid Suppositories
Boric acid suppositories are an alternative treatment option for women who have a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis (BV). Doctors recommend them as a second-line treatment after standard yeast, BV, and trichomoniasis treatments have failed.
The CDC suggests using capsules that contain 600 milligrams of boric acid daily for 2 weeks. The suppositories are available over the counter at drug stores and online.
Whether boric acid suppositories re safe for you to use depends on how much you use, how often you use them, and what other medications you take. You should also talk with your health care provider about the risks of using this medication.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid using boric acid suppositories. It can be toxic to the developing fetus.
Other people who should not use boric acid suppositories include anyone with diabetes, a weak immune system, or who is taking blood-thinning medications such as warfarin (brand name Coumadin). These people should also stow their suppositories out of the reach of children and pets because they can accidentally swallow them and ingest undissolved boric acid, which may be fatal.
