Boric Acid Suppositories Side Effects *MUST SEE BEFORE USING*

October 7, 2019

But if you purchase boric acid, remember that
you can die. Calling the Texas poison control network. If you are a healthcare professional, please
press one. Hey. How are you all doing? If you’re new to my channel, welcome. My name is Quinn C.J. I’m a registered nurse
and I am your YouTube women’s health coach. I make videos every week about women’s reproductive
health. And I would love for you to join the Q-ummunity
by clicking that subscribe button under the video. Not too long ago I made a video about my experience
using boric acid suppositories. It was a very detailed video. I took you with me day by day as I used it. I checked in with you and I told you how I
felt about it. And if you haven’t seen that video you might
want to start there. So I’m going to link you right here. You can just click that and it’ll take you
to that video or you can just stay where you are with me right now and watch this one and
go check that one out later on. Let me first say a disclaimer. I am not a doctor. I cannot prescribe you things. I am a registered nurse but I am just giving
you my personal experience. Boric acid suppositories have been around
for quite awhile. I think they’re just now kind of getting a
lot of buzz going on about them because there are a lot of people that are actually finding
a whole lot of success in using it to treat things such as yeast infections, vaginosis,
BV, and even when you just have a little imbalance going on down there. It is an anti-viral and an anti-fungal that
is cost effective. You can get a whole bottle for under $10 off
of Amazon. That’s where I got mine from. And also it has been helping a lot of women
who have not found success using over-the-counter medications or even prescription antifungals
when it comes to treating their medical conditions such as the yeast and the BV and the vaginosis
and stuff. I’m going to say that first because I know
that it does help people. If you are like me, you have already heard
of boric acid suppositories. And when you heard about it, putting it in
your vajayjay was nowhere in the equation. Boric acid can be found in Walmart, Dollar
General, Family Dollar over there with the insect killer because it is an insect killer. People use it for aunts and for roaches and
all kinds of little critters because it is a useful insecticide. Now don’t go over there looking for it because
that is not the one that we want to be using for our private areas, ladies. But it is, essentially, the same substance
repackaged and some tweaks have been made to it. And it’s now in a pill form. I’m going to go ahead and show you what it
looks like. Hold on. Okay, so this is my bottle. I actually picked this up from Amazon when
I was trying it out. I don’t know all the brands but this one is
a Feminiva boric acid 600 milligram capsule. There’s 30 of these in this bottle. And I’m going to show you what it looks like. It looks like a regular capsule. Like a regular … like if you take a pill
or capsule Tylenol or something like that. Can you see that? That’s what it looks like. Just like … I thought I dropped it. Just like a regular pill. But anyway, what you’re not going to do, what
you better not do, is ingest this orally. This is strictly for inserting into the vajayjay. What happens is it dissolves, you put it in
overnight, it dissolves and then it does its work while you’re sleeping at night. The directions on this bottle are very small,
number one. And I ain’t got my glasses on. But … oh my. Wow. Okay. Insert one boric acid suppository into the
vag, preferably at bedtime, for seven consecutive days. And if your symptoms persist, you may go ahead
and repeat another seven days. Those directions are pretty standard for all
kinds of boric acid capsules, suppositories. They also call them boric acid capsules. Okay. I had a really hard time finding this. Actually, I didn’t find it anywhere at my
local pharmacy. I even went to the natural stores. I could not find it. Amazon was the only place that I could find
it. And that might be a good thing. I don’t know. But if you’re interested in buying it, then
you have to try it at Amazon. Well, I couldn’t find it anywhere else. I’ll say that. Now you probably say, “Okay, you say if we
tried, you just said it was deadly. Why would we try?” Because you definitely need to know the risks
in using it. But like I said earlier, it is effective for
people who have had resistance to everything else. I’ll say that. And I can’t discount or discredit that too
many women are saying that it helps them when nothing else does. Now let’s go ahead and get into boric acid
suppositories’ side effects. Like I told you, you insert to one of the
capsules into the vag at night before you go to bed and it lives in there and dissolves
until the next morning. And you’re going to repeat that for seven
days. The directions say you can even repeat it
for another seven days if you don’t get the results that you are looking for. Now some of the side effects of using it would
be vaginal discharge from the vagina, redness, burning. Burning is kind of … that’s what I thought. I mean it’s called acid. It’s boric acid. Even the boric don’t … it sound like it’s
going to burn, right? Fever, worsening of your symptoms. So that means if you’re already having a discharge,
if the discharge just gets worse, that’s the side effect of using it. Or if your symptoms go away but then come
right back, they consider that to be a side effect as well. If you have wounds, scrapes, cuts, abrasions,
any of that going on inside of your vajayjay, then you do not want to use this because you
do not want it going into your bloodstream. If you are pregnant … yes, I said pregnant. If you are pregnant, you do not want to use
this because you do not want it going to your baby. You should not use this medication if you
have pain or tenderness in your pelvis or lower stomach, fever, chills, nausea, if you’re
having vaginal bleeding, if you have pelvic inflammatory disease, if you have an active
sexually transmitted disease, high blood pressure, heart disease, a weak immune system, a blood
vessel disorder, or if you are pregnant and or breastfeeding. It’s also not approved for anyone under the
age of 12 years old. Now, personally, I wouldn’t even give it to
a 13 year old. Okay? Even though I’m reading and it says 12. No. I mean you need to be an adult if you use
this for the simple fact of the toxic risks that it has. You do not want to take this orally. If you ingest this orally, it can be toxic
to the body. I in no way want to misinform you all. You know I want to give you the right information
all the time. So we are going to actually call poison control
and see what they have to say about boric acid suppositories. Calling the Texas poison control network. If you are a healthcare professional, please
press one. Otherwise, to speak to the next available
specialist- I pressed one. North Texas Poison Center. My name’s [inaudible 00:08:26]. How can I help you? Hi [inaudible 00:00:08:28]. I have a question about boric acid suppositories? Can you give me information on those? Because I’ve been told that if you ingest
them that they’re deadly. Is that true? No, I wouldn’t expect it to be deadly. I mean of course all poisoning has to do with
the amount of dosage that you take. But people have ingested these before. Did someone ingest one or … ? No, I was just wondering because it’s new
to me, boric acid suppositories, and I just … after I read that I was like, “Well I’ll
go ahead and call poison control and see what they say about it.” No. Is for vaginal use? Right. For like a yeast infection. Right. Okay. Yup. Yup. If you ingest these, just for a little bit
of for your information, it may cause [inaudible 00:09:23] irritation. You may get some nausea, vomiting, diarrhea,
which may be blue or greenish in color. If you get enough of this, a lot of that nausea,
vomiting, diarrhea can cause dehydration and some other issues. But if you’re taking [inaudible 00:09:41]
you can sick from it. If you take one on accident it’s not going
to be a huge deal. But if you take a lot then it could be an
issue, basically. Oh, okay. Okay. Do you have any other questions for me? Yeah, no. That was it. So if I take one what do I need to do? Do I just drink a lot of fluids or what do
I need to do? Yeah. I mean, if you swallowed one … no one swallowed
one though, right? No, no one swallowed one. I’m just wondering. Okay. Yeah, you would drink fluids at home, make
sure you stay hydrated. If you have a lot of prolonged nausea, vomiting,
diarrhea, that lasts over 24 hours you think you’re getting dehydrated, go in and see the
doctor get checked out because he may need to give you something if you’re getting dehydrated. But other than that, it shouldn’t be a huge
issue. Oh, okay. All right. Well, thank you so much. Yeah, no problem. Oh, and the diarrhea, that often can be discolored. It can be like blue green. So don’t freak out about that.

    Ooh making it worse. Boric acid always seems to have mixed reviews for a variety of things. Sounds like a no no for this if you ask me but at least it’s not deadly

    Interesting! It's very affordable, so that's very neat. But it definitely freaky that it's also an insecticide ahahaha. 😱 Don't think that I'd ever use it personally because that freaks me out LOL.

    Its a no for me…..not quite sure what vaginal conditions this suppose to clear up but if nothing else is working i think its time to see a doctor….drinking water, a decent diet and cotton underwear will also help alot…..its just too risky for me, boric acid? everything has scary side effects, its not so much of the crazy side effects but the fact its boric acid the same thing i have killed roaches with.
