Background: Reproductive health is affected both by the quality of the health-care services and the socioeconomic development level and the position of women in the society. Women's health cannot be understood unless a specific definition of health that is related to their role and position in society, specifically in the family unite. Materials and Methods: The aim was to assess the female teachers' opinions regarding the factors affecting the reproductive health in the Kirkuk Technical Institute. A cross-sectional study was done, and a randomly selected sample from 50 female teachers from different scientific departments after receiving their agreements to participate in the study which was started from November 1, 2016, to December 1, 2016. A special questionnaire form was prepared and distributed to the study sample. Results: The study results showed that 66.0% of study teachers were living inside Kirkuk city, (58.0%) from the administrative department. Nearly 42.1% teachers from the administrative department married at the age <20 years, whereas 32.2% teachers from the technical department married at the age >20 years. Conclusions: The study concluded that young age pregnancy can be prevented through the encouragement of family planning counselling.
