How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS

How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

Obsessive compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears, which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive compulsiveness are complex and often deep seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

You can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, whereas, severe obsessive compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

When you start pondering or obsessing over an activity, you must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.

The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting the daily life of the person. There are two main treatments, firstly cognitive behavioural therapy, which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face one's fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.

Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.

During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 

Once you have one exposure task, you can move on to a more difficult task, until you have overcome all of the situations that make you anxious.  It is important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing.

Hi, if your cycles r 28-30 days then the risk of pregnancy is less by having sex on 8th day, but to confirm you can get a urine pregnency test in case you miss your period.

How to cure blocked fallopian tube? And if it is blocked then how period is OK (delaying 1 or 2 days)?
Hello, Blocked tubes are often due to salpingitis and hence to be treated and if hysteroscopic cannulation and recanalisation doesn't help then next best step is IVF. Menses has nothing to do with blocked tubes.Menses do not need tubes to occur.

Is the uterus removal surgery is harmful anyway at the age of 50-55? Are there some chances of tumor in uterus due to over loss of blood?

Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Dear Lybrate user, Uterus removal surgery should be done if it is clearly indicated. It should not be done just for sake of it. Over loss of blood doesn't cause tumour in uterus to appear. It's rather tumour in uterus that causes over loss of blood.

You should feel your baby's first movements, called "quickening," between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25 weeks. By the second pregnancy, some women start to feel movements as early as 13 weeks.

I want to ask how can conceive the child  because when I leave my sperm it gets outside of the vagina.
Dear Lybrate user It's normal that aome of the semen comes out after sex ,but this doesn't mean that conception will not occur. There is enough semen left inside for pregnancy.Still,for better results,your partner should keep lying for atleast 15 minutes to ensure that maximum amount is retained inside

What is FNAC?

MD - Pathology
Pathologist, Noida
What is FNAC?

FNAC or FNA stands for fine needle aspiration cytology. This is a simple OPD procedure generally done by pathologists . In this a patient would have a visible swelling or lump. The pathologist will insert a needle in the swelling ,move the needle back and forth, and aspirate ( suck) cells present within the lump. Slides are prepared from these cells aspirated. They then study the cells on a microscope and give a report.

Time required for procedure :  few minutes only

Done by : pathologists

Local anesthesia given for pain relief during the procedure :   Usually not given .

Fasting required : not necessary

Any complications of the procedure :  usually mild pain for a few minutes, rarely and depending on site of

lump,  may experience transient shock, hematoma etc

Report availability : usually by next day .Please check with the doctor performing the procedure.

Why it is done : To look for Tuberculosis, cancer cells, parasitic organisms etc

Special comments :

1. If the swelling is not visible, say it is within the body and detected on scans, then the procedure is done by a Radiologist who localizes the swelling and the pathologist inserts the needle under guidance.

2. Always discuss the report with the pathologist who has done the procedure. Please do not make your own impressions from the report.  They may be vastly different from what the pathologist is trying to convey

3. Usually FNAC is diagnostic of parasitic infections .In cases of suspected cancer, report usually says that atypical ( not good looking cells ) present. This needs to be further worked up by biopsy for definite categorization of swelling.

4. Tiny swellings ( usually less than 0.5 cm in diameter ), indiscreet swellings, or swellings that usually cannot be fixed between two fingers generally , should not undergo FNAC procedure -  as chances of aspirating cells are pretty low in such cases. So the report would be misleading in most such cases.

If you had periods, then chances of pregnancy should not be there but some times even while pregnant, some ladies do get little bit of bleeding. If you are very apprehensive, simply get a pregnancy test done.

After 12 weeks the uterus rises out of the pelvis into abdomen as the baby keeps growing, so this is normal. The vomiting feeling sometime stretches a lil longer but will surely go away in a week ir so

My wife's age is 49 and she is under menopause due to which she has very little interest in sexual and love. She is working for 8 to 9 hours in sales and also after coming back home cook food. We hardly have sexual relationships during Sunday and that too she obliges me due to the relationship. Can you please suggest the foods, vegetables and any homeopathic medicines with proven record which can increase her stamina and also develop feelings in her for our smooth and sexual and other love relationship.

Hi, one has to regain the energy, spent by calorie value through diatary regulation. Mental satisfaction is essential, too to reduce d stress& anxiety. You hv to respect her feeling and let her cool down to generate interest in sexual activities when she is back home. She should tk, apple, carrots, cheese, milk, almonds, walnuts, spinach, beet roots, pomegranate, mangoes to restore her energy. Homoe medicines: @ sepia 200-6 pills, at bed time. @ alfalfaq-10 drops, thrice with little water. @ ignatia30-6 pills, thrice a day. Tk care.

I have less breast milk. When I squeeze breast it comes in drops. My mom says it should come more. Also my baby after sucking for some time gets irritated and starts crying so I have to give him formula feed. My baby is 17 days old and my breast milk is not sufficient for him. Please help as I want to breast feed him and discontinue formula feed.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS

Don't try to squeeze as you can not get milk by that. Only way of getting adequate milk is suckling the baby. If the baby is irritated while feeding you check for proper attachment. You must stick on to breastfeeding only. Drink good amount of water.
