Yes: Talk to your doctor about radioiodine therapy. If you receive radioiodine, however, it is generally advised that you do not attempt be become pregnant until 12 mos. After treatment, although there is absolutely no scientific evidence to support waiting that long. This therapy is not associated with birth defects, cancer, leukemia etc.
