Anyone Use Fem-dophilus to Help Prevent UTI?

I average 5 UTIs a year. I don't usually get E. Coli, but other bacteria. I've heard that taking fem-dophilus (probiotic) might help replace the bad bacteria in the vagina with good bacteria, therefore reducing the number of UTIs. My problem is that I can't take it orally due to a problem with my immune system. I've heard of several people taking it vaginally. If any of you insert it vaginally, how often do you take it? Once a week, twice a week, more often? How has it worked? I'd like to try it, as I've tried everything else.
