Maybe: If you have bacterial vaginosis (bv....Best diagnosed by a healthcare provider) then boric acid suppositories can help restores normal vaginal flora. Here's a reasonable recipe: http://ezinearticles.Com/?How-to-make-boric-acid-suppositories;id=6206017.

Vaginal infection: Not unless you have a yeast infection, which can be treated by otc meds. If you have a bacterial or infection otherwise, you need to go see a doctor. Go with your mother or a trusted female friend.

Not that are safe : If you have a bacterial infection in your vagina, you should see a doctor. There are many different types of infection and you may need antibiotics. Without treatment you could become unable to have children, extremely ill or die. If you are pregnant, you may give the baby a disease that may kill the baby before birth or leave the baby handicapped. The pregnant mother may die also.

Antibiotics: First you have to make sure by getting a vaginal test that it is bacterial infection, if it is picking an infection you have to finish appropriate antibiotic course.
