A new study finds new moms show more symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder than their peers.
Northwestern University researchers found 11 percent of women who had given birth within six months had significant OCD symptoms. Only two to three percent of the general population had similar symptoms.
Concern about dirt or germs was the most common worry reported by the mothers.
Researchers say OCD symptoms are usually temporary and most likely due to hormonal changes.
