Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infections
Boric acid is an over-the-counter treatment that can help maintain your vagina’s natural pH. This can help reduce the growth of pathogens that cause bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections like candidiasis (also known as trichomoniasis).
It is safe to use boric acid capsules, but it should only be inserted intravaginally into your vagina. It should never be taken orally, as boric acid can be toxic if consumed orally.
Using Boric Acid Suppositories for BV
You can buy boric acid suppositories at drug stores or online. They are available as capsules and come with an applicator to insert them into your vagina.
These capsules can be effective for treating recurring BV or yeast infections, but they aren’t considered first-line treatment, according to Dr. Dweck. Instead, they are usually used to prevent recurrence after antibiotic treatment or to aid in treating an infection that won’t quit.
Some people also claim to use apple cider vinegar or tea tree oil for BV, but the quality of these remedies is often anecdotal and lacks scientific proof. These remedies should only be used under the guidance of a health care provider.
