In brief: Get an exam...

The list of things that cause vaginal ulcers is pretty short.
If it is a painful ulcer, the most likely cause is herpes. Syphilis causes a painless ulceration. There are a number of other causes. You could drive yourself crazy wondering about it. The best thing to do is see your Gyn and have it evaluated. Best wishes!
