* ''Film/FatalAttraction'': Alex refuses to abort Dan's baby, citing the fact that she already had fertility issues--she assumed that she couldn't get pregnant following a traumatic miscarriage, and her age--36--that it could be the last chance she has to have a baby.

* This is so widely-recognized that some languages have a word for it. For instance, in [[GermanLanguage German]], the word is ''Torschlusspanik'' -- literally "panic at the closing of the gate". It can be used in other situations where an opportunity is coming close to an end, but it's most commonly used for the angst of older women about their ticking biological clocks.

* On ''Series/AdamRuinsEverything'', Adam (and an actual researcher on the subject, who herself had all of her children relatively late in life) explain that the reason we're always told that a woman's fertility drops after 35, is that most of the existing data on the topic comes from 16th-century French farmers. More ''modern'' data suggests that the decline happens in a woman's mid to late 40's, not 30's. Also, the risk of birth defects doubles after 35- from 0.5% to 1%

His further interview with the researcher expands that it's often a trade-off: women, who have children later in life, tend to be more advanced in their careers and more financially secure; at the same time, they're not as energetic as they were ten years ago, so it may be a little difficult keeping up with kids. It's just something every women has to decide for herself.

* Dr. Brennan in ''Series/{{Bones}}'' had no interest in parenthood during the first few seasons, until towards the end of Season Four, when she decided she wanted to be a mother, and asked Booth to volunteer as a sperm donor. This plotline was interrupted by Booth's brain tumor, and made academic by the end of Season Six, when Booth and Bones conceived a child the old-fashioned way.
