In brief: Variable
Genital herpes can cause the typical ulcers or sore but it may also present in other ways such as burning with urination, itching without discharge, vaginal irritation with mild spotting.
Your doctor can do some very sensitive tests to check whether the symptoms you have are due to herpes. Check the cdc.Gov website for more information on herpes and other stis.
