hello karthik,you cannot cure ocd but you can get control on it .Yoga can help but i don't think its too much effective in case of  ocd, you are taking medicines for last three years but have you tried cognitive behavior therapy?
This type of therapy specially exposure therapy is very much effective in case of ocd , you should consult a psychologist to learn therapy, you can also take help from the book "Overcoming Obsessive Thoughts: How to Gain Control of Your OCD "by christine purdon, its really helpful for pure o sufferers.

Hi Karthik,

A few questions for you:

What exactly are you worried about.  What are the thoughts that keep bothering you?

What medication are you taking and what is the dosage (how much are you taking per day)?

There are a number of different medications that can help with OCD and because everyone is different, some medications are more effective for some people than others.

What country are you from?   Did you get your medication from a regular doctor or from a psychiatrist (a mental disorder specialist)?

Part of getting over OCD is having someone you can talk to about it.   A therapist would be the best choice.   Is there a reason why you have not told your parents about your problem?   Is there at least a friend who you can talk to?

Yoga is good, as is meditation but I would also recommend getting regular vigorous exercise, like running or riding a bicycle.  It burns off some of the energy that is flowing through your body and takes your mind off of the upsetting thoughts.
