Inserting Boric Acid Suppositories

If you’ve had yeast infections or other vaginal infections that don’t respond to standard treatment, inserting boric acid suppositories may help prevent future recurrences. These suppositories are capsules that you insert into the vagina. They come in different dosages and ingredients, so be sure to read the instructions carefully before attempting to use one.

How to Insert a Boric Acid Suppository

The best way to insert a boric acid suppository is to lie down. Try to be comfortable while you do this, and make sure that your legs are not twisted so that the suppository doesn’t fall out. You may also want to place a pad underneath your legs or other absorbent material to prevent any leakage.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Inserting Boric Acid Suppositories Safely and Effectively

When you insert a boric acid suppository, it usually takes several minutes for it to dissolve completely. This is because the suppository’s water-soluble ingredients dissolve in an acidic environment, which reduces the ability of pathogens like Trichomonas vaginalis to grow.

What to Expect

It’s normal for you to have some discharge when using a suppository, but it should disappear within 15 minutes. If it happens more often than usual, or if you experience severe pain when using a suppository, contact your doctor.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

No studies have been done to find out if vaginal boric acid suppositories can harm pregnant women or their babies. If you’re planning to become pregnant, you’ll need to tell your doctor before starting any treatments so they can advise you on whether to use them.
