In brief: Possible
Both menstrual migraine and menstrually related migraines do occur and not unique to find success from meds used as preventatives such as topirimate or depakote.
A triptans Frova (frovatriptan) can both stop and prevent ha's. Discuss these approaches with your doctor.

There is such a diagnosis for your condition.
Can be trated exactly as you would a regular migraine or add some hormonal manipulation during the premenstrual phase.
