Boric Acid Suppositories

  • Boric acid suppositories are usually prescribed as a 600mg as a vaginal suppository for use 1-2 times per day for 2-4 weeks.
  • Boric Acid helps to promote the proper acid balance in the vagina so you feel fresh while supporting healthy vaginal flora (the normal levels of bacteria and yeast found in the vagina).
    • Boric acid suppositories have long been used for treating vaginal yeast infections.

    • For some women with compromised immune systems, these suppositories may be more effective than other treatments.
