Online OCD Test

ocd test obsessive compulsive disorder testIf you are struggling with obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, you may be wondering if you have symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder or OCD. Obsessive compulsive disorder is characterized by high anxiety provoking obsessive thoughts combined with an urge to do something to get rid of them.

Behaviors such as hand washing, checking, counting, cleaning, or other compulsions are examples of ways to you might feel compelled to get rid of the anxious thoughts. Unfortunately they only provide temporary relief. 

Though not all forms of OCD have obvious compulsive behaviors. The OCD test can help you recognize if the anxiety you are experiencing is related to OCD.

OCD Screening & Severity 

This online OCD test is a screening tool to help you identify whether you do have OCD symptoms as well as identifying the severity of your symptoms. However, only a trained mental health professional can give you a diagnosis of OCD.

Even if your OCD symptoms are mild, getting treatment sooner than later can help prevent symptoms from worsening. 

OCD can occur alongside mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD. Or be specific symptoms of eating disorders or body dysmorphia. It can be helpful to take other mental health screenings to help you get a clear picture.  

Effective Treatments for OCD are Available

If your OCD test results indicate that you do have OCD symptoms, especially if the severity is medium or high, we strongly recommend that you make an appointment with a mental health professional for OCD treatment. There are several effective treatment approaches for OCD. Bring a copy of your results from the OCD test to your first appointment. 

The unwanted thoughts and behaviors you might be experiencing can be overwhelming and you might not know what can be done to alleviate your symptoms. However, OCD is manageable.

*The OCD test indicates symptoms of OCD as well as severity of OCD symptoms. However, this online OCD quiz does not serve as a diagnosis of OCD. A mental health professional can provide you a definitive diagnosis and treatment options.*

Take the OCD Test

1. Over the last seven days, how much of your time was occupied by obsessive thoughts? How frequently did the obsessive thoughts occur?
2. Over the last seven days, how much did your obsessive thoughts interfere with your social or work functioning? (If you are currently not working, please think about how much the obsessions interfered with your everyday activities). (In answering this question, please  consider whether there was anything that you didn't do, or that you did less, because of the obsessions).
3. Over the last seven days, how much distress did your obsessive thoughts cause you?
4. Over the last seven days, how often did you try to disregard or ignore these obsessive thoughts and let them pass naturally through your mind? (Here we are not interested in how successful you were in disregarding your thoughts but only in how much or how often you tried to do so).
5. Over the last seven days, how successful were you at ignoring or disregarding your obsessive thinking? (Note: Do not include here obsessions stopped by avoidance or doing compulsions.)
6. Over the last seven days, how much time did you spend performing compulsive behavior? How frequently did you perform compulsions? (If your rituals involve daily living activities, please consider how much longer it took you to complete routine activities because of your rituals).

8. Over the last seven days, how did you feel or would you have felt if prevented from performing your compulsion(s)? How anxious did you become or would you have become?
9. Over the last seven days, how much  an effort did you make to resist the compulsions? Or how often did you try and stop the compulsion? (Rate only how often or how much you tried to resist your compulsions, not how successful you actually were in stopping them.)
10. Over the last seven days, how much control did you have over the compulsive behavior? How successful were you in stopping the ritual(s)? (If you rarely tried to resist, please think about those rare occasions on which you did try to stop the compulsions, in order to answer this question.)
