Abstract

This study explored the issues of infertility and its treatment in south Asian culture, and the ongoing disputes that have been linked to treatments of infertility. The aims of the research were to explore south Asian men and women’s perspectives of infertility and health, and attempted to identify and explore any cultural and religious implications that may have influenced opinions and options about infertility treatments. Drawing upon the interview data that was collected from south Asian university students, a thematic analysis was utilised which generated three themes: cultural norms and expectations (1), religious uncertainty towards fertility treatment and the importance of marriage (2), and social roles within the family (3). The responses given by the participants exemplified the key themes that the researcher set out to explore, and provided a sufficient amount of data, which recognised the religious and cultural implications that affected people’s views and attitudes on infertility and its treatment
