Read this at your own risk. It may be a little TMI for some, but I think it's helpful information.

I'll start off by saying there's no such thing as medical grade boric acid. Boric acid is just boric acid. I saw a couple people asking whether this was "medical grade" and safe to use as an eye wash because of all the warnings on the bottle. There aren't different formulas, it is what it is. I did A LOT of reading on boric acid, including the MSDS safety sheet, and the gist of everything I read was DON'T inhale it, DON'T eat it, and DON'T use it on broken skin.

Also, try to get past the warnings. Don't ignore them completely, just remember acid isn't always a bad/scary thing. Lady parts are naturally acidic, your muscles produce lactic acid when you exercise, and your body needs amino acids to function. Boric acid is a weak acid, and is considered to be no more toxic than table salt when used topically. Just remember, even though salt is tasty and most of us would consider it harmless, it too can cause health problems or even be lethal. Think of boric acid the same way. Moderation is always key.

The first thing I used this for was to act as an emulsifier with beeswax to make some skin cream. Mission accomplished.

The next thing I used it for was a stubborn yeast infection. I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago (at the age of 27) and have been struggling with surgical menopause. This means I'm in hormone Hades, with stubborn weight gain and severe hot flashes. This led to a chronic infection that 3 doses of Diflucan and all the Monistat in the world couldn't fix. After reading up on how to to use this for yeast infections, I got some NOW Foods "00" gelatin capsules.

*Do not read if you have a weak stomach*

I gave this 5 stars because the delivery was really quick. It got here in 3 days, so I'm happy about that, but I will update later after usage.

I have been struggling with BV since I was 9 years old (yes, it can happen that young). I'm 23 now, soon to be 24 later this year, so it's needless to say I have somewhat learbed to live with my "condition".I figured out how to hide the smell, when the discharge would be the heaviest, and how to hide it from my partner, all of it.

I have been through hundreds of methods online after going to the doctor was a waste of time.

The prescription medication only lasted as long as I took it, as soon as I stopped taking it, the BV came back like nothing was ever different. The only time I got any short-lived relief was when my doctor suggested I go through therapy for my BV. Basically, all that is is when the put you on medication for a long period of time, so I was on Metro-gel for six months. One insert nightly for a week, then once a week for a month, then once a month until I run out of refills. This worked for a while and I remember being excited and feeling weird because it was the first time in a LONG time I was able to wear underwear without a pad, paper towels, or a wad of tissue in my panties to catch the discharge and keep it from ruining my undies. But when I ran out the BV came straight back after my period ended. I was 19 when this happened, so I have been dealing with it STILL.

I have tried everything from switching my detergent and soap, to going on an all vegan diet, to a completely sugarless diet, which meant no juice, just water and reading the HECK out of labels for hidden sugar additives.

This is what my doctor recommended to me years and years ago for chronic yeast infections. I gotta say, it does the job. Buy them with size 00 veggie capsules, insert in the vjj (never take them orally), and you will clear up in a matter of hours. It kills yeast. Period.

...for abusing my vagina AND wallet for the past six years. Six years of copays, antibiotics, creams, gels, otc, bank breaking "treatments". I developed BV when I was pregnant with my son and have suffered ever since up until 4 hours ago. I also bought the 00 veggie caps to make suppositories, filled those bad boys up and inserted just one as far as I could. I'm going to keep up a 3 day regimen and use them for maintenance if I need them but I'm ecstatic to report that the odor that has given me actual nightmares has disappeared. I have my life back! I can go to the gym and wear dresses without having to constantly worry if anyone else can smell that. I would cry right now but I'm waiting for my husband to come home so we can have crazy nasty (but not stanky) sex. Ladies, please don't hesitate, you don't have to suffer or compromise with vaginosis. Punch your doctor in the face and order boric acid.
Oh wait, now I am crying...but they're happy tears for once. 😊

Hi, I am a Naturopathic Dr. and was so frustrated about my bv. Believe me or not, I've had this condition for years, I've tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, you name it ! Some things worked for a couple of days,(antibiotics were the worst) then... again and again. It was so frustrating that I also decided not to have a sex partner anymore, as this was so embarrasing for me. I promised that when I found "the product" I would recommend it to everybody I can, so, here I am doing so. I almost can't believe this moment came! I know each body reacts in many different ways, but you can try this humble and amazing product and I am positive you will have great results. I filled 00 vcaps and introduced one with an applicator three days in a row....Magic! no more bv, even if they say that you should use it just for bv prevention, for me it worked killing everything down there! After doing so, I am introducing one cap once a week just in case and because I believe that it will maybe take sometime for the tissues to react by themselves. I will do so for a couple of months or when I think I need it. Once in a while you will maybe need a moisturizer. I hope you will find this review helpful! I still can't believe I could get rid of this nasty condition! Thx!
