Chronic BV and intimacy?

I've been dealing with supposed BV for a long time now. It's never gone away, no medications have been able to keep it at bay. I've abstained from sex since it started, but I'm wondering if it was necessary to. If this won't go away any time soon, I rather get back to my normal physical life at least.

Have any of you with chronic BV or general vaginal infections been able to have sex while these infections are still present? I would use protection, no doubt, but I'm just scared that it'll make me bleed or hurt, or worsen the infection somehow (or just be gross due to excessive discharge). Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with it and what you would recommend doing.
