The purpose of this section is share links to clinical studies and articles relating to boric acid as a vaginal treatment.
Much has been written about the efficacy of hydrogen borate (boric acid) as a therapeutic component for several vaginal conditions. Clinical studies report that boric acid may assist in treating the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis (BV), recurrent bacterial vaginosis (RBV) and yeast infections. The value of boric acid is its ability to lower the pH level by acidifying the vagina to promote a healthy acidic balance (pH) of the vagina.
