Boric acid suppositories are all the rage right now, as they should be. After all, they work remarkably for vaginal odor, itch, and yeast infections. But you need to be careful on the brand that you choose. I wanted to give some quick tips on choosing the perfect vaginal suppository.
- Make Sure It’s Vegan – many companies will sell you gelatin based capsules. THis is made from animal parts and is likely not healthy for the vagina, especially long-term. Studies have also shown that vegan capsules break down much better, so you don’t have to deal with annoying next-day discharge.
- Make Sure They’re Giving You Enough – many companies try to make profits by only selling you 18 pills for the price that others sell for 30. Don’t fall for this. You’ll end up paying twice as much for the same capsules.
- Make Sure They’re in the USA – be very careful – many brands are now coming from overseas. Look at the packaging to make sure it does not look suspicious. It should say made in the USA, clearly on it.
