In brief: Probably

All endometrial tissue whether or not it is in the uterus or outside is hormonally active and so when you have your period, it is not unreasonable for your endometriosis to become more active and cause pain due to shedding related inflammation.
Take nsaids or start a hormonal birth control method.
