Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
There is no evidence of any harmful effect of these 2 procedures on female reproductive system or XXXXXXX organs so you dont have to be worried. Ultrasound waves are used for diagnostic routinely and US cavitation is bit more intensive US wave. However,it cant reach XXXXXXX organs and even if does,it cant cause some damage.The same is with radiofrequency,these are to low energies to cause any damage.

BUT it is contraindicated in pregnancy so you must be sure that you are not pregnant and dont use it at time when you want to become pregnant since it may effect implantation of embryo. Also for good outcome, these methods should be combined with natural ways of weight loss, dietary changes and exercise.
Wish you good health.
