Hi, it is safe to get pregnant after 2 years of radioactive iodine treatment. In some cases, rai may not work and you have to take medicines for that. Talk to your doctor regarding this. Sometimes relapse occurs that means it was treated but again appears. I think you should get your thyroid under control before planning a baby because it can lead to miscarriages also. Pregnancy won't have any harm for you. Hope I have answered your question . If you have any other query I will be happy to help.
