Deciding Whether to Use a Cream or Suppository

( — July 23, 2018) Cheyenne, Wyoming — Everything from diet and hydration to tight underwear or a new sexual partner can trigger vaginal infections. Feminine hygiene is a delicate balance of pH levels and cultivation of “good” bacteria naturally found in the vagina. Whenever things get out of whack, being armed with the best treatment for such a sensitive area is paramount hence the debate between using a suppository or a cream. Obviously, a cream is less invasive but a suppository is sure to provide quicker and better relief. 

“Vaginal suppositories are solid medications that are inserted into the vagina with a special applicator,” explains Healthline. “This is because suppositories melt inside the body and are absorbed directly into the bloodstream.” 

Majority of suppositories coat the active ingredient with substances such as gelatin or cocoa butter to regulate how soon after insertion the treatment is released when the warmth of the vagina gradually melts the medicine, allowing it to consistently fight infections.

Conversely, the application of a cream is a one-time deal plus its viscosity causes it to leak out of the vagina throughout the day, creating more of a mess than any considerable medicinal benefits. 

“In one study of 92 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 600 mg boric acid capsules inserted into the vagina twice per day for two-to-four weeks,” says College Pharmacy. “Other studies have shown cure rates of 92% to 100%.” 

Based on this knowledge, HealthyWiser uses boric acid in its Femme-Fresh vaginal suppository in order to guarantee fast relief, pH balance and safe medically approved results. Most creams rely on clotrimazole, miconazole and/or tioconazole as the main active ingredients, however, they have been proven to be ineffective half of the time against Candida glabrata, a stronger strain of yeast than the more common Candida albicans (thrush). 

So while pushing a pill in one’s vagina isn’t the most exciting method of treatment, think of it as if it were a tampon. The duty performed by the Femme-Fresh vaginal suppository is sure to get rid of unpleasant odors, control bacterial and yeast overgrowth plus ease itches in a much shorter time than any cream could.
