Hello!

Sores on your vagina I agree that warrants STD testing ...

See your gyn ASAP I recommend

Testing for HSV1 and HSV2 is indicated but also others

Syphilis may be a cause of PAINLESS ulcers so should be tested

Herpes usually quite painful

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,
