It depends.: ... On what is causing the ulcer. Most ulcers are caused by a combination of stomach bacteria and or medications which induced ulcers, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or similar compounds. If multiple factors are present, ulcers could form within several days to a week. Usually, however, they former much more slowly than that.
