No, I make my own. However- I add a little bit of coconut oil in the capsule which really cuts down on the irritation!

For many women, this goes just fing but, if tissue if very irritated, burning can happen. The ratio of ingredients is really important. I would do a LOT of coconut oil and just a little tiny bit of the boric acid. Tiny, tiny bit.

Put in freezer to let it form into a workable piece - but also realize that as it melts, well, it will melt. Gravity happens.

There are some capsules formulations that can be inserted at night, less oil to "melt" - but I found one kind of these to really burn so much.

You might search for TORI HUDSON, ND - a gyn. ND's site and book.

There is an Olive Leaf product specifically for women's needs at SEAGATE's site.

There are also some homeopathic suppositories.

Anyone with candida: intimate partners also need to be treated: topically (both for intimate areas and also for the mouth) and systemically.

Mountain Rose Herbs (in Oregon)

GOLDENSEAL-MYRRH COMPOUND (an ointment for topical application, although their site may also have similar suppositories).

I find this ointment to be a life saver for vulvodynia.

GOLDENSEAL-MYRRH COMPOUND (an ointment for topical application, although their site may also have similar suppositories).

I find this ointment to be an absolute life saver for vulvodynia. It's in this set:

http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/salves/salves.html

Herbal Salves & Balms

. . . Made from organic or wildharvested material, in solar infused herbal oil and in a base of natural beeswax. No artificial ingredients, no synthetics, no petroleum products and certainly no perfumes. . . . (end excerpt)

I do not see any suppositories listed, however,
you could call them about one of these being used as a suppository. Small bits could be frozen for easy application.

(800) 879-3337 - in Oregon, PT

---------------------

HERB PHARM would be another place you might inquire - and many health minded markets carry their products.

Have you ever tried Yeast Arrest? The suppositories have boric acid in them.

Pure formulas.com seem to have a good price and free shipping.

They seem to work for our daughter.

Hi Lymetoo,
I have used the boric acid capsules as suppositories and they can cause some burning. I have vulvodynia so I can't do them every day.

I don't do them much because I found the Yeast Arrest supps by Vitannica which are great. They help with both yeast and BV.

I have been struggling with BV and a lot of pain from it and recently tried using a goldenseal capsule as a suppository. That caused a lot of burning but it eventually helped the BV. I am now just taking the goldenseal orally and it seems to be helping the BV. In the past I had used yeast arrest but it wasn't working this time. It has been a great product for me in the past through. And I think Tori Hudson is the doctor who created the formula for it. Both Yeast Arrest and Tori Hudson were mentioned separately above!

Keebler - I am going to look into that goldenseal ointment you mentioned...it must be antimicrobial with the goldenseal but it still doesn't irritate you?
