Bacterial Vaginosis Treatment

Jan 8

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is caused by an overgrowth of certain types of bacteria in the vagina. It is commonly treated by using antibiotics, such as metronidazole, boric acid, and clindamycin. Many women have success with these products alone.

Boric acid suppositories have been used to treat women with BV. A boric acid suppository is a capsule that women put in their vagina to dissolve and deliver medication. Flower Power has created a 1-day, 2-pack of boric acid suppositories for women with BV. The product may help women who want to avoid taking antibiotics to treat their symptoms.

How does one use Flower Power Boric Suppositories?

You should put a boric acid suppository in the vagina at bedtime, every night for two weeks. The capsule dissolves over 8-10 hours and delivers medication directly to your vagina where you need it most.

One study showed that women who used a boric acid suppository for two weeks experienced symptom relief. Most women had a decrease in discharge and odor, and many women were cured of BV.

Are there any side effects?

Some women have reported minor vaginal burning or itching with use of the Flower Power boric acid suppositories. If this side effect persists, you should stop using the suppositories.

There are no reports of serious harmful effects in women who used boric acid products to treat BV in the vagina. There is a risk that women with HIV may become more likely to develop vaginal yeast infections when they use boric acid treatments. If women have an immune disorder or women are pregnant, they should avoid using this product.

Are there other treatments for Bacterial Vaginosis?

Yes. Some women have success with antibiotics, such as metronidazole, boric acid, and clindamycin. You should talk to your doctor before trying Flower Power Boric Suppositories to treat your BV.

Some women have found that the product is beneficial in treating their symptoms of bacterial vaginosis. Other women report that this product did not help treat their symptoms. Some women think the treatment is over-priced for one-time use of medication. Women who have used the product report that women of all ages may use Flower Power Boric Suppositories to treat their bacterial vaginosis. Women of color, women under 30 years old, women with a history of recurrent "yeast infections," and women who suffer from recurring bacterial vaginosis often use the product.
