* In the WesternAnimation/TeenTitans fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9862443/1/Timing-is-Everything Timing is Everything]]'', played for both couples and causes quite a bit of tension. On the one hand, Robin and Starfire have trouble conceiving - turns out they ''are'' genetically compatible despite being different species, but human sperm are too weak for her reproductive system. First, there is an argument about using IVF, then an attempt fails. Raven, on the other hand, has a ButICantBePregnant moment - she's only supposed to be capable of having children with someone who has demon blood. However, she's dating Beast Boy, and apparently his shapeshifting abilities extend to his sperm enough to fool Raven's reproductive system. Then Beast Boy recommends that Starfire [[AutoErotica sits in the T-Car]] next time she's implanted, since that's where Raven got pregnant. Apparently, it works.

* At first this trope is played straight in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/174092 Parable]]'' series, as Shepard's mother abused drugs during her pregnancy, Jane was born biotic but also infertile which is a sore point for her when she married Garrus as she saw herself unable to give him a family. Then the tropes is averted in [[MassEffect2 ME2]], thanks to the Reaper techs used for her resurrection, Jane became pregnant with [[UntoUsASonAndDaughterAreBorn two hybrids]] and despite the closing-in war and the knowledge that their children wouldn't be able to live in peace for what they were, the couple decided to go through with it and carried the two fetuses to term.
** And then it played straight again in [[MassEffect3 ME3]] after Jane volunteered herself as Mordin's test subject to create a specialized cure for the Genophage. The experience succeeded but its side-effects combined with the Reaper techs inside her being fried by the Crucible rendered Jane interfile once more, completely destroyed her and Garrus's wish of giving their twins more siblings.

* ''Literature/WhatsBredInTheBone''. Marie Therese, as a teenager, has sex with a hotel footman after her debut (possibly in ignorance of the potential consequences). Since the family is Catholic, of course they wouldn't ''dream'' of an abortion, which was illegal at the time anyway...but lots of scalding hot baths, many doses of castor oil and large quantities of gin are attempted. None of them work, and Marie Therese marries Francis Cornish Sr. to cover up the scandal.

* ''Literature/What'sBredInTheBone''. Marie Therese, as The Creator/{{TLC}} reality show ''Series/IDidntKnowIWasPregnant'' showed women talking about suddenly going into labor and having a teenager, has sex baby without ever knowing they were carrying in the first place. If you're wondering how such a thing is possible, many women don't gain a noticeable amount of weight during pregnancy, especially if they're already full-figured, and they might normally have irregular periods or experience minor bleeding during the pregnancy and mistake that for their period. It becomes FridgeHorror since the women may have been drinkers, recreational drug users, and/or took legit medication that could have interfered with a hotel footman after her debut (possibly pregnancy. But in ignorance of most cases, the potential consequences). Since babies were born perfectly healthy, though at least one was born in a toilet because the family is Catholic, of course they wouldn't ''dream'' of an abortion, which was illegal mom thought she had to use the bathroom at the time anyway...but lots of scalding hot baths, many doses of castor oil and large quantities of gin are attempted.

* Played for drama on the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E1AsylumOfTheDaleks "Asylum of the Daleks"]]. Due to her ordeal at [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar Demon's Run]], Amy learned that she couldn't have any more children. Knowing that Rory had always wanted children of his own, Amy decided to break up with him in the hopes that he could start over with someone who could give him the family she couldn't. [[IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy "I didn't kick you out, Rory, I gave you up!"]] Amy and Rory are a pretty good example of this trope since they (presumably) weren't trying to have kids when Amy got pregnant with Melody, but now, thanks to the events on Demon's Run, they wouldn't be able to have kids even if they wanted to (as Rory apparently does).
