Hi
Thank you for asking HCM
I have gone through your query.Boric acid suppositories are over the counter drug available for yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis.But it is not effective in all.You can continue its full dose.It is better to have a pelvic examination and swab by a gynecologist to rule out this.I usually advise combination of antibiotics like clindamycin or metronidazole and clotrimazole as vaginal suppository or oral tab for this.I also recommend intimate wash regularly to normalize vaginal bacterial flora and PH and there by prevent from getting further infection.Hope this may help you.
Let me know if you have any further query.
Thanks.
