Read this at your own risk. It may be a little TMI for some, but I think it's helpful information.

I'll start off by saying there's no such thing as medical grade boric acid. Boric acid is just boric acid. I saw a couple people asking whether this was "medical grade" and safe to use as an eye wash because of all the warnings on the bottle. There aren't different formulas, it is what it is. I did A LOT of reading on boric acid, including the MSDS safety sheet, and the gist of everything I read was DON'T inhale it, DON'T eat it, and DON'T use it on broken skin.

Also, try to get past the warnings. Don't ignore them completely, just remember acid isn't always a bad/scary thing. Lady parts are naturally acidic, your muscles produce lactic acid when you exercise, and your body needs amino acids to function. Boric acid is a weak acid, and is considered to be no more toxic than table salt when used topically. Just remember, even though salt is tasty and most of us would consider it harmless, it too can cause health problems or even be lethal. Think of boric acid the same way. Moderation is always key.

The first thing I used this for was to act as an emulsifier with beeswax to make some skin cream. Mission accomplished.

The next thing I used it for was a stubborn yeast infection. I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago (at the age of 27) and have been struggling with surgical menopause. This means I'm in hormone Hades, with stubborn weight gain and severe hot flashes. This led to a chronic infection that 3 doses of Diflucan and all the Monistat in the world couldn't fix. After reading up on how to to use this for yeast infections, I got some NOW Foods "00" gelatin capsules.

This is what my doctor recommended to me years and years ago for chronic yeast infections. I gotta say, it does the job. Buy them with size 00 veggie capsules, insert in the vjj (never take them orally), and you will clear up in a matter of hours. It kills yeast. Period.

Just wanted to add to the discussion. I've been puzzled by the whole boric acid medical grade debate and called Humco today to finally clarify things. Someone mentioned earlier there was no such thing as medical grade boric acid. I learned today that it is indeed true in Humco's case. They only produce 100% and don't carry anything less than that acidity-wise. I then called the compounding pharmacy where I got my Humco boric acid to ask how they went about the whole medical grade issue. The pharmacist said that it depended on the prescription. Vaginal suppositories are prescribed in the range from 200 mg to 600 mg of pure boric acid per "serving." If someone got prescribed 600 mg, then their capsules would be filled with just pure acid, and that is 100%. If you were prescribed 200 mg, then the pharmacy puts fillers in to fill the rest of the capsule (like corn starch). The acidity is much lower in that case. So my understanding is we all, who bought Humco's boric acid and filled 00 capsules with just powder, used 100% (that is if one 00 capsule accommodates 600 mg - I didn't check the volume). It seems like that it is true that there is no such thing as medical grade boric acid, at least not from Humco.

As to this method to fight BV, I used Humco's product and 00 capsules, and it does work very well. I had no smell or milky discharge within the first 3 hours after I inserted the first capsule. But I did have mild burning from the acid irritating the skin, so that's why I called Humco, etc. The regimen is different for everyone,too, I think. Only a couple of days for one person and 3 weeks for someone else.

Hi, I am a Naturopathic Dr. and was so frustrated about my bv. Believe me or not, I've had this condition for years, I've tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, you name it ! Some things worked for a couple of days,(antibiotics were the worst) then... again and again. It was so frustrating that I also decided not to have a sex partner anymore, as this was so embarrasing for me. I promised that when I found "the product" I would recommend it to everybody I can, so, here I am doing so. I almost can't believe this moment came! I know each body reacts in many different ways, but you can try this humble and amazing product and I am positive you will have great results. I filled 00 vcaps and introduced one with an applicator three days in a row....Magic! no more bv, even if they say that you should use it just for bv prevention, for me it worked killing everything down there! After doing so, I am introducing one cap once a week just in case and because I believe that it will maybe take sometime for the tissues to react by themselves. I will do so for a couple of months or when I think I need it. Once in a while you will maybe need a moisturizer. I hope you will find this review helpful! I still can't believe I could get rid of this nasty condition! Thx!

I had been having problems with BV for like 5+ years! I'd been to the female doc time after time, with each visit resulting with a script of either an antibiotic pill or some gel of the same sort. As usual, I'd use use the "treatment" as prescribed, see a tiny bit of improvement, then low and behold...BAM! Right back to where I'd began! So then I would resort once again to search the net for another type of treatment( in dire hope of it being the last time I'd have to do this again! )that would work! Next, I'd found myself buying treatments from the drugstore, some only promising to last for like 3 days. THAT'S IT! My last try at this horrible affliction, I thought I'd try out Boric Acid, after a few stories I'd read about it really seriously working to treat BV!? So I ordered a bottle of boric acid and small clear vegetable caps to make my own "inserts" and after a whole 7 days (well, nights) of inserting the caps...IT FREAKIN WORKED! I also inserted a probiotic as well, each time, with the homemade caps and I've been cleared of this horrible nightmare...FINALLY!
