Default Rotten eggs

OK I went to check on my beer before and it smells like rotten eggs. I looked in my homebrew book and it says that it's a natural smell produced by lagers and should go away eventually. Phew......
I hope it does because I don't want a 2nd batch in a row ruined.
Has anybody else experienced this rotten egg smell and did it go away?

The sulphur odor is produced by some yeasts. I encounter it a lot because I like brewing Hefe Weizens.

It'll go away before it's time to bottle.
