HOCD stands for Homosexual Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and is a term that is used to describe having unwanted intrusive thoughts in relation to your sexual preference. This type of OCD does not discriminate. If you are a lesbian woman, gay man or heterosexual man or woman, if you suffer from the doubt caused by OCD, you can obsess and question your long-standing sexual identity. This form of OCD causes significant distress to the person, but you can end the cycle of doubt by engaging in treatment.
You've had your suspicions. Maybe you've noticed your partner looking at people of the same gender in a different way. Then you discover the truth: your spouse or partner is gay.
Because it's a question only you can answer. You can't ask a teacher or a parent or your best friend or Google or even Seventeen and get a "yes" or a "no. If you're thinking that you might be gay, then know that you have a whole built-in support group of wonderful and diverse people who are just waiting to meet you. It includes people of every race and religion. Your body can be any size and you can be gay.
