Oral probiotics, inserted vaginally? Yes or no?

I don't have a full-blown yeast infection, but I can tell I'm a bit yeasty down there and I'd like to nip it in the bud. I was plagued with recurrent yeast infections a couple of years ago, and what finally rid me of them was Gy-Na-Tren, one component of which is a vaginal capsule with boric acid & lactobacillus. I don't have any of that on hand, nor do I think I need such an agressive treatment right now, but I do have an oral probiotic (this one) that I'm considering using vaginally. Does anyone know if that's a bad idea? I've tried googling, but haven't come up with anything close to an answer. Thanks for any help you can offer!
