Yeast Arrest Boric Acid Plus Suppositories by Vitanica
Yeast Arrest has boric acid plus other unique herbal homeopathic ingredients in a cocoa butter base, including natural ingredients and lactobacillus acidophilus, which are helpful to fight against yeast infections and bacterial vaginosis (BV). Boric acid is a safe substance with mild antiseptic properties. In one study of 100 women with chronic yeast vaginitis that had failed to respond to treatment with over-the-counter or prescription antifungal medicines, 98% of the women successfully treated their infections with boric acid capsules inserted into the vagina twice per day for two to four weeks. Several commercial douching products contain boric acid. If pregnant, consult with your OB/GYN or health care practitioner before use.
NEW IMPROVED FORMULA!
Note: An applicator is not included with these suppositories. Yet, you may purchase a set of 2 separately here. (click link).
For the relief of external and internal irritation, burning, itching and discharge associated with a vaginal yeast infection. If this is the first time you have had a vaginal itch and discomfort, consult a doctor. If you have had a doctor diagnose a vaginal yeast infection before and have the same symptoms now, use these suppositories as directed.
Suggested Use: Acute Yeast Vaginitis (Candida) Mild cases: Insert 1 suppository once per day for 3 to 7 days. Resistant cases: Insert 1 suppository twice per day for 10 to 14 days. Use a panti-liner or pad as suppository capsule will melt and leak over 12-24 hours. We recommend you take an oral probiotic during treatment and/or follow with a few days of Candaclear probiotic suppositories to replenish the good bacteria. Note: Although Yeast Arrest does kill off some of the good bacteria, it does so more sparingly than antibiotics.
Chronic Yeast Vaginitis (Candida) Insert 1 suppository twice per day for 2 weeks. If a response occurs but not a complete resolution, repeat for an additional two weeks (1 capsule 2 times per day). Then, 1 capsule per day for four days each month, during menstruation (or the last days of menses), for four months. Use a panti-liner or pad as suppository capsule will melt and leak over 12-24 hours. We recommend you take an oral probiotic during treatment and/or follow with a few days of Candaclear probiotic suppositories to replenish the good bacteria. Bacterial Vaginonis (BV) See our complete BV protocol here on this page.
Prevention of recurrence Insert 1 suppository once per day at bedtime during menstruation for four months. Depending on severity of symptoms, you may use as little as 1 suppository per month during the last day of your period, or one per day for 5 days during your period (or when symptoms tend to flare up).
Normal side effects: While using Yeast Arrest suppositories, some women experience a large amount and/or different kind of discharge within the first few days. This is normal and can be attributed to the yeast and bad bacteria dying off and being released out of your body. Within days, symptoms will subside. Be sure to be taking your oral HLC Probiotics alongside with vaginal treatment to ensure the body can re-colonize the good bacteria.

These suppositories work well at keeping your PH in check especially after your monthly cycle. My period always throws my PH off so at the end of each cycle I use one suppository and everything is happy the rest of the month. They do have quite a strange smell, that of which isn't terrible but is also not pleasant. I would recommend these to anyone who is having issues keeping their PH on track.
I didn't take this drug perse but my doctor prescribed me boric acid every other day for 2weeks and one once a week indefinitely. I had a horrendous yeast infection that no antifungals would touch and this took it away day 1. I def recommend boric acid for help with yeast. You can make it yourself or get it filled at a compounding pharmacy, which is what I did. As of now, I have suffered from yeast infections for years and I'm hoping this is the cure all for me!
Good thing - it helps. Bad thing - the result doesn't last long. Placing the suppositories twice a days for 7 days is not the most pleasant treatment in a world. I can hardly imaging doing it 2-3 courses in a row (how it is recommended for a chronicle infection). I don't think the suppositories smell too bad though. Worth a try.
This product does have a very strong scent, but you cannot smell it through your clothes. The scent of the product is usually only noticeable when using the restroom. I don't mind the smell of the tea tree oil as it is a natural scent. While using this product I did not notice the smell of my recurrent BV. I would definitely recommend this product.
I still have Bv. The product is messy and does not have a pleasant smell. It does not come with applicators so be sure to purchase your own as well. I called the customer service number located on the box and the rep says use bv arrest product for the treatment of bv and not the yeast arrest which is said on here to be useful for chronic bv . Ill give it a try at this point I'm just desperate to get rid of it!
I was struggling for several months with yeast that would not go away. This product finally took care of it when even prescription oral medication didn't keep it away. It was a little messy, but well worth it. I would recommend this to everyone!
I was a little worried about this product. It worked very well though, I used it once every evening before bed for about a week and have had no sings of a BV since. The smell is a little off putting, but it works, so it's worth it. I will most buy this again in the future if I need it, I strongly suggest it for anyone with reoccurring BV or yeast infections.
I had read about Boric Acid as a remedy for yeast infections and through online research,I found Yeast Arrest and decided to try it. Within in a couple of days of use, my yeast infection was gone. I attribute some of the effectiveness to the extra ingredient of tea tree oil, which is a natural anti fungal. It is such a comfort to have a product that actually works, that I can purchase at my convenience and the cost is very inexpensive. Superb product that should be on the drugstore shelves!
I received this product very quickly, and was happy to finally have something that worked. I have had chronic yeast infections for over two years and was finally able to clear it up by using these twice a day for two weeks. I will also still use them occasionally for maintenance during that time of them month. Only complaint is no applicator included, but after a while I didn't fee l like I needed it anyway.
