Is excess bleeding and a sharp stabbing pain to be expected after having your nostril pierced?

I've had my nostril pierced 3 times, in roughly the same spot. The first and second time I had it done, it closed when I tried to change the stud. So today, I got it pierced for the third time. The last 2 times, the only pain I felt was during the actual piercing. Afterward, it was fine. This time, there is a constant ache and a sharp stabbing pain every few seconds. Also, this time I bled for longer than the last 2 times. I also noticed that this time it seemed to hurt more. Is the excess bleeding and sharp stabbing pain normal? Thanks!!!
