Everything's connected.
Hormone changes and chemical changes [like prostaglandins] can cause pms. They can also cause changes in our digestion. Women with irritable bowel [ibs] and inflammatory bowel disease [crohn's, ulcerative colitis] sometimes notice more diarrhea, less digestion/more gassiness right before and during their periods. Also PMS cravings can inspire us to eat gas-causing foods too.

In brief: No

Production of sulfur type gas is typically related to the foods you are eating.
Presumably, you might be digesting food differently during your period, but sulfur smelling gas is not typical of menses.
