Can one use Lactobacillus acidophilus to treat bacterial vaginosis and, if so, how?

I have a doctor's appointment in three days for what I believe is BV. Meanwhile, I also have a pack of Acidophilus Pearls
. The MayoClinic website implies that I can somehow use Lactobacillus acidophilus to treat BV. It would be awesome if I could do that instead of getting some sort of heavy duty antibiotic from the doctor.
Has this actually worked for anybody? If so, how do I do it...would I use the pills orally or vaginally? (and, if vaginally, how exactly does that work?) Throwaway email address of mefianonhomeremedyfilter AT gmail DOT com for followups and replies.
