Ok so about two weeks ago or more I found out I was pregnant. It wasn't planned. At first I was going to have an abortion than my parents found out and people were telling me not to get an abortion. I was terrified of how my ocd would get during the pregnancy though. I had looked online and it said that your cod gets worse when you are pregnant. I contacted this guy I know that is an OCD specialist and he said 50% of women get better 50% of women get worse. He said some more stuff too. Anyways ya I was terrified of how it would eefect my ocd. Anyways one day I finally started to feel a little bit more confident about going through the pregnancy. The next day I started to miscarriage. The miscarriage started on 6/15 and the bleeding stopped maybe 4 or 5 days later. Anyways after it I went to the ER to make sure everything was ok and out. Than all of a sudden two days later and for the past week my ocd has been baad. I didn't know what it was. The lady at the ER said it would take two weeks for me to go like back to normal because my hormones were just up and than dropped back down. I had talked to her about  the bqad headaches i was getting. So I'm thinking that maybe my oc is so bad because I still have the hormones or whatever in me. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this. If so please help and let me know your experience. I mean I was even thinking after I'm supposed to go back to being normal if it doesnt improve(my ocd) of getting on a new medication. For the last week though it has gotten bad. Does anyone think this is from my body still not being back to normal? I read on another website it can take 4-6 weeks for your vody to go back  to normal or something like that.Anyways if anyone has gone through this please write me back. Or if you have had this experience after an abortion or while you were pregnant.

    Greta, clearly i have not had this experience myself.  From the women whom I have treated for OCD however, I can tell you that it frequently takes 4-6 (rather than two) weeks for those hormonal changes to stabilize.  Things should calm down here with a bit more time.

    when i was pregnant yeah it really flared up – it was 9 months of hell, the hormones, the stress, it made all my conditions a lot lot lot worse, and i didn't know what it was, i thought it was just the hormones, i didn't realise it was hormones making other problems worse, i mean i knew i had ocd but didn't realise the extent of it – but yeah it was absolutely awful, i was quite seriously considering suicide for months and months – and then, as soon as the baby was born, it was weird, everything just vanished as soon as he was out.  but i don't know, maybe it's different with miscarriage because it's not like a birth, or maybe everyone's just different.  but yeah during the pregnancy, it was awful.
