* ''Series/{{ER}}'' did this with Doug and Carol. True to form, after they learned that she wasn't pregnant, they realized that they were disappointed rather than relieved.



* This is exploited by Hermes Conrad's wife [=LaBarbara=] in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode [[Recap/FuturamaS7E7TheSixMillionDollarMon "The Six Million Dollar Mon"]]. When Hermes is depressed over getting fired, [=LaBarbara=] tells him that she is pregnant and that he isn't the father. After her husband panics, she assures him that she isn't pregnant and only said so to help him realize that losing his job isn't so bad when compared to an unexpected pregnancy.

* In ''Film/{{Grease}}'', Rizzo and Kenickie's pregnancy scare is a major subplot. In this case, it averts ButWeUsedACondom, because Kenickie broke the condom while putting it on, and they do it anyway.

* Happened to SilverSable in the MarvelUniverse during her own short-lived series. She thought she was pregnant after sleeping with her ex-husand and starting making plans to retire from the adventuring business. It turned out to be a glitch in her cycle and her doctor pointed out this was probably for the best as the reckless actions she had taken while she thought she was pregnant indicated she really wasn't ready to be a mother.

* Happens to Tibby in the fourth ''Series/SisterhoodOfTheTravelingPants'' book, after a condom accident. Though it wouldn't have been quite so bad if she hadn't been juggling multiple {{Idiot Ball}}s during the whole thing. Without waiting for any indication that she was actually pregnant, she freaked out over the exact timing of when her period is due (is it one month after the last one began or after the last one ended?), and broke up with her boyfriend out of fear of the pregnancy.
