Can Zoloft trigger OCD?

Hello fellow OCDers.
I know that my OCD is hereditary and I was born with it. I am 26 years old and I started compulsions around age 13. I was able to stop the majority of my compulsions and I lived a normal life for the past 10 years. However, this summer something traumatizing happened to me. I went through a difficult breakup and I was under a lot of stress. My mother told me to get on an antidepressant since I was so miserable. I tried Zoloft 50 mg for 2 days. It triggered 2 horrible thoughts. Once that happened, my OCD relapsed. I was unable to think my own thoughts and every thought was unwanted. Do you think Zoloft played a role in my obsessive thoughts? Or do you think this would have happened eventually since I do have OCD? My therapist is unsure and I feel like Zoloft ruined my life. I really believe if I did not try Zoloft, I would not be in this mess. I am currently on Luvox which is helping, but I am not back to "normal." I worry that I will always have these thoughts and I want to feel like my old self again. Can anyone relate to this?? I just need some advice!!
