In brief: Possibly

Gaining weight cyclically associated with your menstrual cycle is a common complaint.
Avoiding salt and salty food may help. Call your family doctor. If your exam is normal, and your fluid retention is significant, your doc may be able to help you with a mild diuretic. But first you need to be checked out.
