Boric Acid Pills For Vaginal Use

Currently, boric acid for vaginal use is not FDA-approved. It is also not recommended for pregnant women. However, there are several studies showing that boric acid may be helpful in treating BV.

Is BV connected to gut health?

Boric acid pills for bv  are a common boron compound, which has been used as a home remedy for vaginal infections for over a century. It is safe for adults to use and has antifungal and antiviral properties. It also has a mild antibacterial effect.

Boric acid is available over the counter and in suppositories. These suppositories are designed to be inserted into the vagina with the use of an applicator. It is important to insert the suppository as far as possible without discomfort. It is recommended that the vagina be washed before insertion.

A study published in the Journal of Women’s Health showed that boric acid is safe for use in the third trimester of pregnancy, but may not be safe in the first or second trimesters. It is recommended that pregnant women consult their doctor or OBGYN before taking any supplement or medication.

Toltec Pharmaceuticals’ TOL-463, a combination of boric acid and EDTA, was recently evaluated in a Phase II clinical study. The study showed that boric acid can be used to treat yeast infections and BV.

The study found that boric acid can be effective at reducing BV symptoms and the risk of recurrence. It also showed that boric acid can kill disease-causing bacteria.

While boric acid can be used to treat BV, it should not be used as a primary treatment. Antibiotics are the standard treatment for BV. They are effective and have a high cure rate. However, about 52% of people with BV will have recurrence within 7 years.
