The Use of Boric Acid Vaginal Suppositories

Jan 10

Boric acid vaginal suppositories are safe medications physicians recommend to women to treat bacterial vaginosis (BV). However, participants may encounter mild side effects during the treatment period. Boric acid is a white crystalline substance that forms insoluble borate salts with several acids (e.g., tartaric, oxalic, glycolic, propionic, fumaric, and malic) and is available as a white powder for oral administration.

In medical practice, boric acid has been used as a caustic agent against external parasitic and dermatophyte infections affecting the skin and hair. Vaginal suppositories containing 25% w/w boric acid are highly efficient in treating bacterial vaginosis (BV) that occurs due to overgrowth of anaerobic bacteria (e.g., Prevotella sp. and Peptostreptococcus sp.). BV is an infection that typically occurs due to disturbance of the normal vaginal flora (e.g., Gardnerella Vaginalis, Atopobium Vaginae, or others).

Boric Acid Vaginal Suppositories Treatment Plan

Typically, boric acid vaginal suppositories are administered once daily for 5-7 days and they should be inserted into the vagina 30 minutes before bedtime. A burning sensation during insertion may occur and is very common. Vaginal application of boric acid preparations reduces the growth of pathogenic microorganisms and restores the normal vaginal pH value (4.5-5.0).

Boric acid vaginal suppositories are available in different concentrations; however, it is advisable to start treatment with Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories containing 50 mg of boric acid/suppository (see Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories product page for more information). The supplier will provide the patients with complete information about the potential side effects of Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories.

Side Effects Associated with Vaginal Application of Boric Acid Vaginal Suppositories

As is possible with all medications used for the vaginal application, women may experience a temporary burning sensation during insertion. Other side effects that are commonly associated with the use of Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories include vaginal discharge and itching. Vaginal irritation after Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories insertion is reported in 5-7% of the cases.

Vaginal application of Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories is a simple and efficient treatment for BV that has been scientifically proven to lower the risk of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases. Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories containing boric acid restore vaginal flora by reducing pathogenic microorganisms, thus helping women to prevent infections. Vaginal application of Vaginal Flower Power Vegan Boric Suppositories can also help women to prevent possible pelvic inflammatory disease after intercourse with a new partner.
