Possible: The questions would be, what type of pain? How severe? Does it resolve when your cycle ends? Does it happen every time? Any Other associated symptoms? If it's once and significant, it could be a sign of an infection, but it its common and mild, it could certainly be related to stimulation in the tissue by hormonal changes during this time.
