As a woman, I understand the finicky, temperamental, and often panic-inducing whims of the vagina. Did you forget to take off your wet bikini immediately after the beach? Mayhem ensues. Peeing the minute after intercourse slipped your mind… because, well intercourse? A gyno bill in the making. But here at Vérité Woman, we don’t believe in the shame of taboos, we’re here to get real. If you aren’t often stumped by chronic Bacterial Vaginosis (an imbalance of bacteria in one’s vagina) or bi-monthly yeast infections (an imbalance of yeast in the body) you’re practically a unicorn with magic genes, and God bless you. For the rest of us, I am here to share the all-natural remedy that I spent most of my adult life searching for.
Bacterial Vaginosis, Yeast infection — Meet Boric Acid.
As someone who has suffered from chronic BV and yeast imbalances simultaneously, this has been my single most effective savior. I’ve spent quite literally years of my life on Google in an attempt to avoid another trip to the gyno in which they would prescribe antibiotics for the BV (which satirically enough also is a main cause of yeast imbalance). According to WebMD, I was already dead and this was a manifestation of hell. The best I came up with were home remedies that were more like witches brew. Yet, I tried them all willingly — none rewarded me with results of a healthy pH balance.
According to a study by the Center’s for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 women have BV and may not even know it!
Finally, one day in the depths of a forum for extremely disgruntled, uncomfortable and desperate women (E.D.U.D.W.) someone suggested something called boric acid. They said you could buy it on Amazon.
Why I had never seen this clearly branded option before is a mystery. Why it wasn’t popping up on my Google ads since I so frantically had been searching all its keywords is, in my opinion, the greatest failure of the Internet. And I am here to save you from the same defeat.
I Amazon Primed that shit.
Within the first few uses, any and all symptoms evaporated as if they had never been. Both fungal and bacteria were returned back to their rightful percentages. Where I was constantly trying to maintain, I finally felt like I was able to cure. I came to find that this natural healer comes from boron and water which by Wikipedia’s definition is literal fairy dust:
“Produced entirely by cosmic ray spallation and supernovae and not by stellar nucleosynthesis, it is a low-abundance element in the Solar system and in the Earth’s crust.”
Basically, boric acid acts as a natural antibiotic to kill bacteria and fungal overgrowth in our bodies made up of minerals found in the earth.
By using a boric acid suppository for three to seven days straight before bed (and continuing use as needed), it can return harmony to your vagina and ward off incoming infections.
