History of Boric Acid and Feminine Care

Although the word “acid” is not one that you immediately think of in terms of feminine care, boric acid suppositories have been used for quite some time. Previously, boric acid suppositories were expensive and inconvenient to obtain, as they were only available through a compounding pharmacy. pH-D changed the market by creating a convenient and affordable boric acid suppository with the 600 mg level of boric acid that doctors recommend. The following is a closer look at the history of boric acid and feminine health.

What is Boric Acid?

For those who are unfamiliar, boric acid is a common compound that is found in seawater. It is a compound that has been used for over 100 years. In its purest form, boric acid is a white powder that is both colorless and odorless. Boric acid is a common and safe ingredient. It is used in a variety of cosmetic products such as those for vaginal odor.

Although boric acid can be harmful if swallowed, it can be safely used by many women for vaginal odor. If you are pregnant, trying to conceive or breastfeeding, you should not use boric acid. Keep in mind that you should never use boric acid or other similar suppositories if you have sores, open wounds, or if you have a sensitivity or allergy.

How to use Boric Acid

If you are looking for a solution for vaginal odor, boric acid may be an option for you. You can use boric acid by inserting a suppository using your finger or an applicator, similar to the way you insert a tampon. We recommend inserting the suppository at bedtime.
