* ''{{Vandread}}'': The heroes come across a planet in the second season which had this done to them by Earth. Needless to say, they cure it.

* ''Literature/TheHandmaidsTale'': A main cause of the revolution that created the Republic of Gilead was widespread sterility. The few fertile women, dubbed Handmaids, are assigned to the households of powerful men for the express purpose of producing children. Unfortunately, if the men aren't fertile, the women are blamed for it.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Birth rates in the US had plummeted to catastrophic lows by 2015. And of the babies that ''are'' born, many didn't survive long past birth. This is apparently due to environmental toxins.

* It's not a plague per say, however, the constant spread of [=STDs=] chlamydia and gonorrhea can and, sometimes, if not treated properly or in time, will cause sterility when the disease ravages the sexual organs. Likewise, the same can occur from [=HPV=], as said virus can cause cervical cancer.

** In one episode there's a group of colonists who had too few people to successfully build a colony, so instead of sex the went the cloning route. Now due to [[CloneDegeneration replective fading]] they can't do that any more, so they steal DNA from people on the ''Enterprise''. The resolution if that they marry their cousins from {{Oireland}} InSpace.

* ''When She Woke'' has this as the source of its plot. A sexually transmitted disease caused many people to become sterile and birth rates fall dramatically. Due to this, a constitutional amendment has been passed in the US forbidding abortion. Those who have illegal abortions, like the main character, are punished with a gene therapy that turns their skin red (other crimes get different colors). It's based on ''Literature/TheScarletLetter'', updated to a dystopian future world.

* ''Literature/TheHandmaidsTale'''s movie adaptation has this as part of its backstory, just like the original book. Birth rates have drastically fallen due to pollution and sexually transmitted diseases rendering much of the population sterile. This spurs an extreme religious sect to seize power, making the remaining fertile women into "handmaids", or sex slaves of the regime's male leaders.



* ''Literature/TheHandmaidsTale'': A side effect of the revolution that created the Republic of Gilead was widespread sterility. The few fertile women, dubbed Handmaids, are assigned to the households of powerful men for the express purpose of producing children. Unfortunately, if the men aren't fertile, the women are blamed for it.

* Though the female aufwaders in Robin Jarvis's ''Whitby Witches'' trilogy can still conceive, the curse on their race means that, unless they end the pregnancy, their blood will turn to brine, causing an agonising, and ultimately fatal, illness. As if that wasn't bad enough, the mother will be reduced to a briny sludge and the child, if it survives to term, will crumble to dust within minutes of birth. Only one aufwader born since the laying of the curse has survived infancy.
