The 3 canker sore looking bumps on my vulva hurt only one day and seem to be healed now (day 3). How long do herpes ulcers last? What were those bumps?

In brief: 7-10 days

Wow you are a fast healer. Maybe it was not canker sores.
As they do not clinically present as bumps.

In brief: Genital Herpes

If it is genital herpes, the infection is for life.
When it is active, don't have sex. This is when it is most contageous. If it was something else, quite possible because herpes usually lasts longer than 3 days, have it looked at by youe dermatologist or other doc.
