In brief: How to check for OCD
A person can use a number of standardized scales and diagnostic screeners to cone down on if you have OCD or not.
If you go on line and google OCD screening tools, you will find things like the yale brown obsessive compulsive checklist, or ybocs. With a little background, you can take this. Plan to discuss this with a trained mental health professional like a psychiatrist to be sure.
