Boric Acid Suppository

Boric Acid Suppository


75% of women will experience a yeast or bacterial vaginitis infection at least once in their lifetime and 40-45% of those affected will have multiple cases. Vaginitis is an inflammation of the vagina caused by bacteria, yeast, parasites or viruses. Candida, a yeast like fungus is responsible for 40% of all types of vaginitis. 

Boric acid comes from a mineral found in sea water. It is an odorless crystalline powder that is primarily used as a topical antiseptic or a suppository.  Boric acid works to relieve certain vaginal infections. It has been used as an effective solution when conventional anti fungal medications no longer work or become a hassle to take. Boric acid has been reported to be effective in 98% of women who have failed to respond to conventional treatments. It is not only an effective solution for yeast infections but for bacterial vaginosis as well. 

Any situation such as antibiotic use, excessive alcohol or sugar, intercourse, or use of douches can throw off your pH balance making it easier to get an infection. Vaginal pH should ideally be kept acidic. Herbotanical’s B-Fresh works by restoring pH levels and balancing vaginal flora (helpful bacteria).  

How to Insert: Wash hands with soap and water.  Gently push the suppository deep into the vagina.  Wash your hands with soap and water again. 

How to Insert With Applicator: Wash hands with soap and water.  Place boric acid suppository on the applicator and gently insert in your vagina.  Rinse applicator and allow to dry before storing.  

Use one B-Fresh capsule per night for 7 consecutive nights. If symptoms persist, use for one more week. The suppository will cause a clear discharge so it is recommended to wear a pantyliner. Do not use more than one capsule a night.  For spot maintenance, it can be used as needed. Avoid having sexual intercourse while you are treating a vaginal infection.  Boric acid will not prevent an infection from spreading to your partner.  

Common side effects may include: Watery vaginal discharge, redness, mild burning, a gritty sensation in the vagina.  Stop using and call your doctor at once if you have new or worsening symptoms, vaginal burning sensation, high fever, or symptoms that go away and come back.

Store at a cool room temperature away from moisture, heat and direct sunlight.
