Self made boric acid suppositories are vaginal capsules that you insert into your vagina to treat a number of conditions, such as bacterial vaginosis (BV) and trichomoniasis. They also help maintain an optimal vaginal pH, which can become alkaline due to menopause and perimenopause, douching or changes in your diet.
As many as 1 in 4 women have a BV infection, which is usually treated with antibiotics. But BV can recur in up to 50 percent of cases. It usually causes a foul-smelling, strong fishy discharge and itchiness or burning in the vagina.
When yeasts (fungus) are allowed to grow in the vagina, they cause symptoms like itching and burning, thick but odorless discharge that looks like cottage cheese, and pain during sexual activity. These can be painful and uncomfortable and can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease or infertility if left untreated.

Yeasts also produce a lot of waste. This waste is very hard to flush out of your body. It can build up to dangerous levels and can clog your pores, leading to acne or other skin problems.
As the name suggests, trichomoniasis is caused by an overgrowth of a bacteria called trichomonas. It can be treated with a course of antibiotics, but the bacteria can sometimes develop resistance to these treatments, which can result in a recurrence of trichomoniasis.
