    Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a debilitating chronic disease with an estimated prevalence rate of 2 to 3 percent in the general population. The first patient was a 34-year-old female with a diagnosis of OCD according to DSM-V from about seven years ago with the Yale-Brown score 31. She referred to our center with simultaneous infertility and PCO since 11 years. The second patient was a 32-year-old female with a diagnosis of OCD according to DSM-V with Yale-Brown score 34 since 5 years ago. In two patients, paroxetine may lead to successful pregnancy in addition to reducing the OCD symptoms. According to this initial report and the randomness of pregnancy in patient treated with paroxetine, there may be a hope to develop new protocols for the treatment of infertility using paroxetine.
