Oncologist 's  Response
Hi, 250 mcg is really high dose. Thyroid imbalance can cause sexual dysfunction. But not to worry about. You need to see endocrinologist to adjust doses, and that's it. Then of course you can marry and perform sexual intercourse normally. Don't fail to follow oncologist. Take care.
