In brief: Probably

Ocd probably has a significant genetic basis and those genes likely relate to neurotransmitters including serotonin.
Low levels are not pleasant - depression, various anxiety disorders (including ocd) are related in this matter. Here's info: http://health.Nytimes.Com/health/guides/disease/obsessive-compulsive-disorder/causes.Html best!

In brief: Correlation

There is evidence to suggest a correlation between low levels of serotonin in the brain and ocd.
If you believe you suffer from ocd, you might consider getting an evaluation.
