Ladies who have had RAI: Did it mess up your menstrual cycle?

Hi all,

I had RAI for hyperthyroidism (Graves') last Friday, 1/18. I had 20 MiCu. I feel perfectly fine, albeit a little tired.

However, I think I'm starting my period today. Under normal conditions, I'd be expecting my next period on Feb. 2, so I'm a little over a week early. Since I have (or had, I suppose) hyperthyroidism, I was used to getting my period a couple days earlier than normal every month, but not quite this early. I re-started my Methimazole on Tuesday; I have a follow-up with my endo on 3/13, but I'm going to call my PCP if I start to feel super awful before that.

So, have any of you other ladies had your menstrual cycle be screwed up as a result of RAI? I know it'll take a few weeks or so for hypo symptoms to show up (if they do at all), so I'm not necessarily concerned about that. This is just annoying. Plus I'm craving chocolate (and I HATE chocolate), so that's extra annoying too.
