It depends on where the ulcer is. Some ulcers cause pain immediately after eating, while others do not cause pain until a few hours after ingesting food. If you experience bleeding you should see a doctor right away.

Well it depends how long you've been suffering from the symptoms, when a stomach ulcer pops it would release blood into the stomach, and then you'll be vomiting, and you'll have black stool as well.
