Trig Is it OCD or am I a pedophile?

Sorry this is a long one. I have a history of OCD. When I was 14 I suffered from severe OCD that pushed me into clinical depression for around an year. Then, an year ago I had OCD that I am seriously ill. But now I have pocd, but can't tell if it's OCD or real pedophilia(and I am hiding behind OCD).

Possible trigger:


I was never abused sexually and didn't had exposure to any sexual stuff until puberty. So how can I suddenly turn into a pedophile? I don't want my family to know this so I didn't told my parents. I can't go to a therapist or else I will get reported. Please let me know what you think about me. Thanks for your time.

It definitely sounds like Ocd to me.

Thanks for the positive reply. I am glad that you think it's OCD. But I need a more detailed answer.

Well because you arent really attracted to young girls. Mainly pedophiles like children and dont really like women there age. Plus you are checking on the internet to see if you are a pedophile and checking for groinal responses. All this is checking behavior typical of Ocd.

Its OCD, because your worried about it and checking up on it. Pedophiles don't do that. They just go and act on it without second thought. Your going through a rough time because the more you check to see if your a pedophile the more it reinforces in your mind that you are one. Piece of advice, when those thoughts come,don't react, don't check etc. Just let them come and go and they will go eventually.

I have had similar concerns but more about girls of pubescent ages and upwards and are under the legal age of consent. so I know what you are going through, I have done similar things, tests and ways to check this. I still feel like I might be attracted to girls under the legal age though, it's almost like this concern won't leave me alone.

I feel slightly better now. It got worse to the point that I was convinced that I am a pedophile; but I have realised that I may have been wrong.
