While the precise reason behind OCD development is unknown, there are lots of interesting theories surrounding the development of OCD. They include: • OCD possibly occurs due to hereditary and genetic factors. • Compulsions are usually learned behaviors. These behaviors turn habitual and repetitive when associated with the relief from anxiety. • Distorted beliefs maintain and reinforce symptoms connected with OCD. • Structural, functional, and chemical abnormalities in the brain are the reason. The combination of different factors triggers the manifestation of OCD symptoms. The underlying reasons might be further affected by hormonal changes, personality traits, and stressful events.
