Vaginal Suppository For BV and Yeast Infections

Whether you have bacterial vaginosis (BV) or yeast infections, a vaginal suppository may help you get rid of symptoms.

Boric acud  suppositories are available over-the-counter as capsules that you insert into your vagina. They work by restoring the normal pH balance of your vagina, which helps keep your BV symptoms at bay.

The suppositories also contain probiotics to support the healthy bacteria in your vagina, which can help prevent the recurrence of both BV and yeast infections.

If you have a history of yeast or BV, use boric acid suppositories at least twice a week to help prevent future infections. You can also try taking daily probiotic supplements or eating one cup of yogurt a day to help maintain your natural bacterial balance and avoid recurrent infection.

Vaginal Suppository for BV: How They Work and What You Need to Know

To use a boric acid suppository, lie on your back or stand with bent knees and insert the suppository into your vagina. The product you choose may come with an applicator or instructions for easier insertion.

It is recommended that you use a panty liner while using the suppository to absorb any discharge that may come out of your vagina. You should not use a tampon during treatment, as this can cause the suppository to leak and increase your risk of side effects.

Using a boric acid suppository is safe, but you should not use it without your doctor’s approval. It can be fatal if swallowed, so you should get medical help or contact a poison control center right away if you experience any severe side effects.
