Herpes or Behcet's: Genital ulcers can be caused by the herpes virus or one of several other sexually transmitted infections. In the us, herpes is the most common and can infect both the mouth and genitals. Behcet's disease can also cause oral and genital ulcers. You should be seen by a physician or an std clinic.

Wow: While I have never heard of genital canker sores, I do believe it is a possibility.
