Boric Acid Helps Cure Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial Vaginosis is sometimes referred to as Nonspecific Vaginitis or Gardnerella-associated Vaginitis. Bacterial Vaginosis is a vaginal infection that affects millions of women around the world. No one knows what causes this frustrating infection; however, it appears to be more prevalent in sexually active women with multiple partners. But just about any woman can get this infection. With Bacterial Vaginosis women experience various symptoms including itching, burning, fishy odor, and/or thin, white, gray or frothy discharge. Untreated Bacterial Vaginosis has been linked to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and may increase the risk of premature birth in pregnant women.

If you suspect that you have Bacterial Vaginosis, you are probably wondering what type of treatment options are available. Although there is no FDA approved ‘over the counter’ cure for the condition and it is best to always seek the advice of your physician, some women have successfully used boric acid to cure their Bacterial Vaginosis infections. But, you may be wondering, what is boric acid and how can I use it to cure my Bacterial Vaginosis?

First of all, boric acid is a white, crystalline chemical substance that is known for its antifungal and antiviral properties. It is available over the counter and many pharmaceutical products utilize boric acid as one of their main ingredients. If you are considering using boric acid to cure your recurrent or stubborn case of Bacterial Vaginosis, then you can either purchase pre-made vaginal boric acid capsules or you can make your own capsules. To make your own boric acid to cure your Bacterial Vaginosis, you simply take some hollow gelatin capsules (which may be purchased at a health food store) and fill them with 500 mg of boric acid. Then, you carefully insert one capsule into your vagina at bedtime for a 2 week period. After this short while, your Bacterial Vaginosis infection should be an infection of the past (hopefully never to return).

    How do you know how much boric acid to put in the capsule? What does 500 mg look like?

    I had a patient today with this issue.
    She could find capsules and boric acid powder, but then did not know how much to put in.
