As a practicing OBGYN,

I am asked practically every day about what I use for various feminine care products. I have decided to share some of my favorite products here every week, especially those found on my FAVORITE, Amazon Prime.

For mildly irritating vaginal discharge or odor, I commonly recommend Boric Acid suppositories. This particular one is my favorite.

I use it every couple of weeks, or any time I feel a little “off.” I can not stress the following point enough.

These are suppositories. They are NOT to be taken orally. ONLY USED INSIDE THE VAGINA.

If ingested by mouth, a person can get very sick and possibly die. It is not absorbed through the vagina, which is why vaginal use is safe.  Boric acid re-acidifies the vagina and makes the environment pro-good bacteria, anti-bad bacteria.

Read more about how boric acid works in THIS popular post.

Leave me a comment here or on social media letting me know how you like it. You don’t have to give me details. A simple thumbs up will do. I hope you like it!
