No.: While it may mean nothing serious is wrong, and will go away, we cannot tell from here. Other more serious problems may be the cause. Call your doc or get seen today. If you have dizziness, severe pain, or fever, heavy bleeding, (more than a pad soaked in an hour), go to an ER if you cannot reach your doc.
