No. I've been keeping fish - including bettas for about 25 years. I wouldn't do that. Honestly don't mean that in an arrogant way. Just giving some background.
She is obviously full of eggs. That would be the only thing. I didn't even have the male when I took that photo. I got him Sunday. I took the photo of her over a week ago. Going by her actions and attitude, I'd say she is fine. Even with the male in a tank next to hers, she goes over and gets nose to nose with him and "makes eyes at him". He flares a little. She flares a little back. Then they go on about their business.
