Objective: To identify the perceived barriers to accessing the available sexual and reproductive health services (SRH) among educated young women in Egypt. Methods: The study population consisted of 520 female Egyptian university students from different Egyptian districts were selected by purposive random sampling and interviewed by means of an in-depth questionnaire in a cross-sectional survey. The interviews were private and confidential, and the questions concerned the perceived barriers to utilize the available sexual and reproductive health services and how to break them from their point of views. Results: Data were collected using a questionnaire and descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data generated. The study revealed that 60% of the respondents have heard of SRH services but only few actually knew the main services rendered at premarital care services as the existing reproductive health services are directed to married women only.40% not trusting the available services while a large proportion of the participants exhibited (85%) have barriers to access the available services. Analysis of Regression coefficient showed significant association between residency and utilization of reproductive health care services; family education and utilization of service and marital status and utilization of the service. The major reported barriers to utilization of SRH services among respondents were poor knowledge of the existing services, Cultural taboos, religious false believes; criticism from others, lack of communication , educational limits attitude of the health care provider, and family's acceptance. Conclusion: This is a major area of concern for health service providers .root analysis of the perceived barriers need to be tackled by policy makers that could help to formulate new strategies that make such services affordable, acceptable and available.
