We examined the effects of I-131 therapy for thyroid cancer on female and male gonads and pregnancy outcome. After an extensive review of the published literature we concluded that ablative administration of I-131 therapy may result in transient abnormalities of ovarian and testicular function, but subsequent pregnancies are safe without any significant consequences to offspring outcome.
