In brief: No, I do not think!

Dehydration is a major risk factor for kidney stone formation.
People with certain medical conditions, such as gout, and those who take certain medications or supplements are at risk for kidney stones. Dietary and hereditary factors are also related to stone formation. However, to my knowledge, there is no relationship between kidney stone formation and menstruation.
