Having intrusive thoughts about homosexuality and doubting one's own sexuality characterize a symptom of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, sometimes called Homosexual OCD or "H"-OCD in online communities.
This is not a separate disorder from OCD, however. Symptoms may include the following: the obsessive fear of being or becoming homosexual, the experience of intrusive, unwanted mental images of homosexual behavior, and/or the obsessive fear that others may believe one is homosexual.

A person may have only one of these facets of the disorder or a combination. Please post again if you have further questions.
