Boric acid has been used for centuries to treat vaginal infections and help restore pH balance. Boric acid or H3BO3 is a weak acid that derives from boric oxide. It is used as an antifungal and antiviral substance to help treat several bacterial infections in the vagina. If you are prone to yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infections, boric acid can alleviate the symptoms.
So how do boric acid suppositories work and what are they good for? Boric acid contains Lactobacilli, the bacteria living inside the vagina that helps maintain its acidity and stabilizes its pH balance. In other words, boric acid helps to balance the vaginal environment. Boric acid prevents the overgrowth of yeast and bacteria living inside the vagina. In turn, boric acid treats many symptoms of vaginal bacterial infections. These symptoms include but are not limited to burning sensation, painful urination, foul vaginal odor, itching, and abnormal discharges. It is also beneficial to take boric acid suppositories when you need to feel balanced ‘down there’. Boric acid is safe to use after sexual intercourse, menstruation cycle, or anytime your pH feels off. Ladies, do not wait until there is an infection to add boric acid to your vaginal care.

- Acute (current infection) - Insert 1 suppository capsule into vagina once daily for 2-3 weeks.
- Prophylaxis (for women prone to yeast infections who want to prevent future infections) Insert 1 suppository capsule into vagina twice a week for 6 months.
- For BV
- Acute (current infection) - Insert 1 capsule into vagina once a day for 21 days.

The vagina is sensitive and many things can disrupt its natural flora, such as sexual activities, douching, or wearing tight underwear. Boric acid suppositories help ensure ‘down there’ is balanced and harmonious. Try out the Kushae Boric Acid and feel the Kushae difference.
