This seems to be implied in-universe, where it's stated the epidemic took place in 2008, with the last baby being born in 2009. While [[PostHodErgoPropterHoc correlation does not necessarily equal causation]] this seems a bit too much of a coincidence to not be related. This would also match with the WildMassGuess above that the government had identified the source but is {{withholding the cure}} for use solely on their own people. Presumably Kee is immune, if this theory holds.

* So, the "II UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar" mentioned in was between humans and apes?
** Possibly, but more likely the apes were just biding their time as the humans killed each other off and died off.

** Pretty much confirmed by the sound of children laughing and playing at the very end of the film. Whether or not this means that all women are spontaneously fertile as suddenly as they lost their fertility, or they found a cure of some kind by studying what made Kee different from other women (antibodies? genetic mutation? exposure to chemicals? whatever it is, reproducible) and applying it to other women isn't answered. But the film's symbolism (up to her name, Kee, or rather, Key) suggests she's central to curing the plague.

Between 1 and 2. The Combine is suppressing the ability to reproduce already. It all fits, except there's no mention of the Seven Hour War.

** Theo passes by the Argentinian embassy just before he is kidnapped by the Fishes, it has flowers laid in front of it, so someone in Argentina is sending out ambassadors to other countries, or at least it's still a symbol of Argentina to people in London.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: England has identified the source of the fertility plague and it is communicable]]
Hence why they are trying to get the fugitives out of the country or destroy them. They want to do so before releasing the cure.

The virus from ''Rise'' mutates so it is not so virulent and deadly, it merely removed reproductive ability. While the human race slowly exits, the apes experience a great birth rate.
