Background: Role of hormones in female body is well known in reproductive age. several studies have been conducted regarding hormonal fluctuations and their association with obsessive-compulsive disorder but the role of psychological issues relevant to it ignored, only hormonal fluctuation and its impact was the target. So, the main purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between self-concept Clarity (SCC) and obsessive-compulsive tendencies (OCC=Obsessive Compulsive concerns about Cleanliness and OCHI=Obsessive Compulsive concerns about Harm & Injury). Another objective was to identify the difference on SCC, OCC and OCHI in healthy and unhealthy females.
Method: The sample of (N=210) females, equal number of healthy and unhealthy females, from different hospitals and from general population, with the mean age of 21 years, was selected by using convenience sampling technique, that is a type of non-probability sampling.
Results: Comparison of healthy and unhealthy females revealed high levels of SCC and obsessive-compulsive tendencies among unhealthy females, further significant positive correlation between these constructs exist. Study participants were selected from single city.
Conclusion: The females with irregular hormonal fluctuations develop obsessive-compulsive tendencies and these people are most often sensitive to little things, even sensitive about themselves that might create clarity in their self-concept.
