I had ocd for 1 year, and completely overcame it 4 yrs ago with cbt+ meds. Since then have had 7-8 lapses but easily overcame. Any risk of relapse?

In brief: Use your skills

Hi SamarthB, People with OCD often have a re-emergence of symptoms.
However, if you keep using your skills when the symptoms come up, you're likely to continue successfully managing them. If not, and they seem to be getting worse, I would seek professional help from a therapist and psychiatrist.
