No, it wouldn't. But judging by her symptoms I'm 95% sure she has them... And you must do 100% water changes to get rid of her parasites; clean water and medication is the key.

Okay thanks how long should it take to get rid of them? And also how did parasites get into her tank?

No problem... judging by the severity of her bloat, they should go away in 2 to 2 and a half months... and I'm not sure. Were there any other fish nearby, or did any fish-water get sloshed into the tank by mistake? Sometimes parasites just seem to pop out of nowhere.

The closest fish is over 10 feet away and he isn't bloated.

That's really wierd. I know there have been one or two cases of sudden parasites on this forum, where no one knows where they came from.

Good luck with her!

if she's eggy at all(and she looks more bloated than eggy), she'll get rid of the eggs herself. my female, Caroline, likes to let them out and eat them. >.>; fast her(speaking of, Caroline's letting her eggs out. again. x-X), and treat her for parasites, as suggested. i think, often, it looks worse than it is, but i could be wrong. >.>;

Hopefully it looks worse than it is. She likes to hide under a short fake plant or under the filter. Is that normal?

hiding could mean she's ill. my VT, Cup, and my PK, Lulu, both hid, and that let me know something was up, cause they're pretty enthusiastic bettas and always greet me when i walk by. when i lured them out of hiding, i saw they had ick. so, it could mean she's not feeling too good.
