Instructions on how to use Feminiva Boric Acid Suppositories – HealthFare
SIDE EFFECTS: Less than 10% of women experience any adverse side effects while using boric acid vaginal suppositories. The main side effect is a mild burning sensation. This can be considered normal since boric acid is more acidic than the normal vaginal secretions.

If you experience abdominal or pelvic pain, unusual vaginal bleeding, blood in the urine, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, or breathing difficulties while using Feminiva, we recommend that you seek the advice of your doctor immediately. These side effects have not been reported with the use of boric acid vaginal suppositories and could be related to a more serious condition.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.  Do not use if your vaginal area is severely inflamed (severe itching and redness) or has any tears or cuts in the vaginal mucosa.

HOW TO USE WHEN SEXUALLY ACTIVE: For many women, intercourse can be a trigger for yeast and bacterial infections. If this is a concern for you, it may be advisable to insert 1 capsule after intercourse and to wait 24 hours after capsule placement to resume sexual activity.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: A milky-colored, watery discharge upon waking in the morning after using a capsule is normal. Many women find that using a panty liner is helpful. The discharge is a combination of the boric acid mixed with vaginal secretions. Douching is not needed and is not recommended.  Douching may, in fact, increase irritation and the risk of infection.
