In brief: Only if u have STD
Being on your period has nothing to do with the issue of std transmission.
If you have an std you can pass it to him. If you do not have an std you can not pass one to him. Many people prefer not to have intercourse during menstruation but there it does not increase the risk of infection and it is not a hazard to your health or his.

In brief: No.
Not unless you have an std.
In that case it doesn't matter if you are on your period or not.
