Door in a brick wall

Well, I have read through the old posts and got some good information I can use, but I still have a few questions and was hoping someone could help me out.
I am putting in a master bath, and the wall I'm putting the door in used to be an exterior wall that is brick. It is a load bearing wall and my question/concern is about support. Will I need to put in some kind of metal header to support the wall over the door, or will the opening be small enough that it shouldn't be a problem?
Any words of wisdom anyone?

You will need a steel header. A good mason can do this easily.
