Bleeding and pelvic pain from boric acid vaginal suppositories

Edited , 5 users are following.

I was wondering if anyone has had any bleeding and pelvic pain from using boric acid vaginally? I thought i was getting a yeast infection and decided to start on the suppositories. On the third day i noticed a lot of pelvic discomfort and lots of bright red blood. I continued with one more day before the pain and blood were worrisome. So after the fourth day I discontinued using the boric acid and the bleeding stopped but my vulva was very irritated. It was very red, dry and it hurt on the right side of the entrance to my vagina. I did notice that I now have little things on my labia minora that appear to be vestibular papillomatosis. I've been in a relationship for nearly 13 years so I was extremely worried that my partner was unfaithful and I may have contracted an STD... honestly, I'm still a little worried. I will have STD testing done in a few days just so i know but I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience using boric acid? thanks so much!

    i have read some bad reviews online about the use of boric acid its actually a poison an has not been proven or trialed in the treatment for bv u should stop using it u may be doing more harm than good its not been proven to treat it just gets rid of the smell for a few days not a long term cure

      thank you for your reply. I really think the boric acid caused a lot of issues. I'm still going to get tested just to be safe. I'm so uncomfortable and it worries me and has me fearing for the worst

    hi, I know this thread is a while ago but I have the exact syptoms from using boric acid. Have you figure out whether bleeding/pelvic pain is normal, did you continue to use it?

    thanks
