Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
The silent epidemic
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that affects 10-15% of women in their childbearing years (16 - 49).
Symptoms and diagnosis
Women with PCOS have a hormonal imbalance which leads to metabolic issues affecting their overall health and appearance. PCOS is a common cause of infertility. Many women with PCOS experience unexplainable weight gain with very little success in losing weight with traditional methods such as diet and exercise.
Other symptoms include hair thinning, unwanted hair growth on the body, acne, mood swings, and more. PCOS is also one of the most common causes of infertility in women.

PCOS is a leading cause of infertility. Simply said, the Trimly treatment will help patients lose weight and regulate their periods which in turn allows them to get pregnant easier than if they left their PCOS untreated.

In 2014, Dr. Aliabadi started treating PCOS patients for weight loss, which helped regulate their periods and made it easier for them to get pregnant. She treated their other symptoms at the same time, relieving them of the pain and stress that PCOS can cause.
Dr. Aliabadi realized that doctors were typically treating only the symptoms of PCOS and not diagnosing the disease itself. She made it her mission to educate women on PCOS and help them gain back their confidence so that they could live more fulfilled lives.
The Trimly treatment has proved to be an effective and life-changing treatment for women with PCOS. Trimly can help you get back to a place where you feel confident again.
To be diagnosed with PCOS, women have 2 out of the 3 criteria listed below:
- Irregular menstrual cycle
- PCOS looking ovaries on an ultrasound (lots of eggs)
- Elevated testosterone which cause side effects such as hair loss, acne, excess body hair and facial hair
Patients with PCOS usually have unexplainable weight gain, mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, and deal with infertility issues due to their irregular menstrual cycles.
If you answered yes to more than 2 of these questions, chances are that you may have PCOS.
