Customer Question

I have very terrible vaginal pain. I rinse to relieve pain. How many days do I need to let vaginal secretions/discharge to return for a dr to get a good idea of my problem. I have used boric acid which removes secretions but pain remains

Boric acid is normally used to treat bacterial vaginosis

is this what you have?

have you gone through menopause?
