OBJECTIVE: To explicate on the part played by culture and Religion on reproduction, family size and individual sexuality (including sexual identification and orientation) in Ukraine a country located in Eastern Europe, a former Soviet Union State with a population of 45.49 million people.
DESIGN AND METHODS: Questionnaires were used, consultations were made, articles and literatures were also thoroughly researched to identify the beliefs related to sexuality, and also its influence and impact on reproduction. Some local information was also gathered during the course of the Research. The level of control that culture and religion have on sexuality and reproduction were also evaluated based on the available data.
RESULTS: It was observed that Religion and Cultural beliefs play a major role in the formation of attitudes, orientations and perceptions. Sexuality is been oppressed while there is greater liberty on reproduction. Religion has little or no effect on reproduction and family planning due to most interpretations and knowledge of it being in line with most methods of family planning but the cultural impacts are still obvious. Economic situation is another major factor that has a huge impact on both Sexuality and Reproduction and it is the basis of most decisions.
CONCLUSIONS: Many population of reproductive age has different views and beliefs about both Sexuality and Reproduction. Most of these views and beliefs are preformed and subconsciously programmed in relation to cultural and religious beliefs. The best way as advocates and physicians is to understand that different factors in the society plays an important role in the decisions of our patients and it will be of greater benefits if we respect some of these beliefs rather than discarding them out-rightly. The 3 most important factors to be considered are the Cultural, Religious and Economic beliefs. More emphasis should also be placed in correcting some outdated cultural norms and beliefs.
