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)....

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