pH-D Boric Acid Suppositories – Usage Information

When and how often should I insert the pH-D suppository?
We recommend using one suppository at night for optimal vaginal health. For extreme odor you can use one suppository every 12 hours.  We recommend wearing a panty liner, especially when using during the day as there may be watery leakage.

How do I insert the suppository into my vagina?

You insert the vaginal suppository like you would a tampon. You can use your fingers and push it up until you can’t feel it anymore.

What are the possible issues with boric acid suppositories?

Some women may experience mild burning or irritation. This may occur if the suppository was not inserted far enough into the vagina or if you have any irritated or open skin within the vagina. Women may also experience watery leakage, so we recommend using a panty liner at night.

I used a suppository and have experienced some spotting, should I be concerned?

A small percentage of women experience spotting when using boric acid suppositories for vaginal odor. It is safe to continue use if you are comfortable doing so.  However, if it worsens or you begin to experience burning or irritation, we recommend you discontinue use.

I used a suppository and have experienced some bleeding, should I be concerned?

A small percentage of women experience bleeding when using boric acid suppositories.  It is safe to continue use if it is slight and you are comfortable doing so.  However, discontinue use if it worsens and becomes more pronounced.  Also, discontinue use if you experience burning or irritation.
