A viewer writes in via Facebook asking if boric acid suppositories can work for certain vaginal bacterial infections. The audience is surprised to hear that OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says they can!
Dr. Nita explains boric acid is not the first line of treatment for BV but for people who have reoccurring BV, which is three or more episodes within a year, it may be used along with an antibiotic.

She warns people to keep it away from kids since boric acid is poisonous if swallowed. To treat BV with boric acid people can use it as a suppository or as a capsule. Dr. Nita demonstrates inserting the capsule into the vaginal applicator.
Always consult a physician before administering boric acid.
