Pregnant. Done ultrasound cavitation on upper thighs. Will it cause harm to the fetus?

Hi. I think I may be pregnant. My period is was due about a week ago. I did a home pregnancy test and it appeared positive. I had the ultrasound cavitation done on my upper thighs twice within the last week (30 mins session each time). I stopped as soon as I had an inkling that I may be pregnant. What kind of harm can this cause? I am very worried about the sounds that were ringing in my ear during the treatment - can this cause harm to the baby?

Thanks for your query.
You does not need to worry because this method is not harmful for the baby because is non invasive treatment nor aneasthesia.
You should go to do a scan to confirm /exclude pregnancy and eat a plenty diet with fruits and juices.
Take care of your self
