Question Can RAI or the RAIU cause menopause?

I am 38 with some early menopause symptoms and osteopenia - would RAI completely kill my one remaining ovary?? (That might not be so bad if it got rid of the meno symptoms too)....

Thanks!
Kathy

Kathy,

RAI effects your thyroid only. Sorry I would say your ovary will be just fine!
