* In ''Fanfic/{{The Negotiations-verse}}'', it's revealed that all of the newfoals are sterile and haven't even had much desire to mate in the years since their conversions. Celestia states in the third story ''Truth'' that she never intended for this to happen and hoped to rectify it after the war, but it becomes a moot point after Equestria is defeated by humanity and Twilight gets to working on a potion that can give the converts their real bodies and minds back.

* Due to insufficient research on long term effects, the "cure" for AIDS turns out to be one of these in the first third of the novel ''TheBreedsOfMan'' by making it impossible for women to have more than one child. The second third is about trying to find a cure for the cure before it's too late, and the last third is about trying to find a way to cure the cure for the cure (since the protagonists just can't stop [[NiceJobBreakingItHero breaking things]]).

* The whole premise of ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'' is formed around this trope. Specifically, it takes place about twenty years after the plague became known.

* The whole premise of ''Film/ChildrenOfMen'' ''Film/ChildrenOfMen''. It's 2027, and the last child was born 18 years ago. For some reason, women all over the world just stopped being able to have kids. The world has descended into nihilistic mayhem, Britain is formed the only still-barely-functioning nation state (and it's an oppressive fascist hellhole) and most people are just sitting around this trope. Specifically, it takes place about twenty years after in depression, waiting for the plague became known.human race to die out.

* In the ''Literature/BookOfGenesis'', after Sarah is taken into the Pharaoh's RoyalHarem (and later, that of a local Canaanite king by the name of Abimelech) because her husband grabbed the IdiotBall out of fear for his own safety, {{God}} prevents Pharaoh/Abimelech from leaving her DefiledForever by making him [[TheLoinsSleepTonight unable to perform sexually]] when he's with her. Not only that, but all the women in the harem are unable to conceive and/or have miscarriages. This goes on until Pharaoh/Abimelech figures out that his latest addition to the harem is already married to someone else, after which things return to normal.

* In almost the ExactWords of the Laconic ("No more mutants!"), the Scarlet Witch used her {{Reality Warp|er}}ing powers to not only depopulate the mutant species, but also to prevent mutant births from happening in the future. Since ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'' ended, there have only been ''six'' mutant births in total.

** The ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' era gives us the M-Pox, a disease caused by the [[ComicBook/TheInhumans the Terrigen Mists]] which causes sterility in mutants. A lot of the X-Men's story during this era has been trying to stop this while trying to play nice with Queen Medusa and the royal family.

* The bacterial genus ''Wolbachia'', which infects insects and nematodes, can cause infected male organisms to be infertile with anything except infected females. If they mate with females that ''aren't'' infected, the clutch of eggs becomes non-viable.

* A second season episode of ''{{Series/Spellbinder}}'' has the dimension-traveling protagonists find themselves in a Victorian-themed world where a deadly plague killed off a large amount of population before a cure was found. Strangely, the cure not only cured the plague but also made people immortal. Unfortunately, the ImmortalProcreationClause is in full effect, as humans are no longer able to conceive. Instead, they build automatons that play and entertain their "parents". When a scientist finds out that the protagonist (a teenage girl and a 20-some man) are fertile, he kidnaps them in order to make a fortune by "producing" real children for everyone and breaks their dimensional ship. They manage to fix it and escape.

* In one storyline in ''ComicBook/CaptainAmerica'', Superia attempted to release a plague that would sterilize the world's female population except for her and her cadre of supervillainesses. As the only fertile women in the world, they would essentially have been able to hold the world to ransom.
