OCD is characterized by obsessions and compulsions. Obsessions are unwanted, intrusive thoughts, images or urges that generate high levels of anxiety. Common obsessional thoughts include the fear of contamination and doubting whether you did something or did something correctly. Compulsions are repetitive behavioral or mental acts that are designed to reduce the anxiety caused by the obsessional thought, neutralize the obsessional thought or to somehow prevent a bad event from happening. Common compulsions include washing, cleaning, and checking.
