BV is caused by an imbalance between the “good” bacteria that keep your vagina healthy and the “bad” ones that cause infections.
Boric acid over the counter are often prescribed to treat BV. But if you’re experiencing a recurrence, or if your symptoms aren’t responding to standard treatment, it may be time to try an alternative treatment.
Boric acid suppositories are a safe and effective way to treat recurrent bacterial vaginosis (BV). They’re usually formulated in capsule form and can be used intravaginally – meaning they should be inserted directly into your vagina.
How to use boric acid suppositories safely
When using a vaginal suppository, insert the capsule as far into your vagina as it will comfortably go. You can also use an applicator to help the capsule get inserted more deeply into your vagina.
Depending on the brand and product, you may need to continue to use the suppository for several weeks or even months, but it can be used for shorter periods as well. It’s important to follow the directions on the label, especially when it comes to when and how often to use the suppository.
Do not use the suppository if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant. It can cause severe side effects in pregnant women and is not recommended for use during pregnancy.
BV Clear is an all-natural vaginal suppository that treats recurrent BV without causing harmful side effects or harming your sexual partner. Each box includes three easy-to-insert suppositories.
