OCD genetics

Hello, if I were to have children, does anyone know how great the chances of them having OCD would be? Are they much greater than someone without OCD? (I'm female, btw, if that makes any difference).

Re: OCD genetics

Hello

I'm not really sure about the actual stats on this would be, but I can tell you from personal experience that a part of it is hereditary, My mom and I are pretty much showing the same symptoms and I am now on meds that she has previously been prescibed as well. I think the key is to not condition your kids to have it, but it may still happen since genetically they're going to be more likely to.
