'''Basic Trope''': Characters have sex in a setting without real life birth control and don't get pregnant.
* '''Straight''': Characters use a fictional form of birth control.
* '''Exaggerated''': Characters can render themselves infertile at will or through AppliedPhlebotinum.
* '''Downplayed''': Characters use some ambiguously fictional herbs which mostly prevent pregnancy, [[ButWeUsedACondom except when they don't]].
** If magic does exist in the fictional world, [[AWizardDidIt then chances are good it can be used to prevent pregnancy]].
** Alternatively, just like in the real world, [[LawOfInverseFertility having sex without contraception doesn't always result in Pregnancy]]. (It's a common problem for those trying for a baby that in some cases they have to take many attempts in order to have a fertile egg, especially in baby-making attempts for those later in life.)
* '''Inverted''': [[LawOfInverseFertility Characters make themselves more fertile with fictional method, instead of less fertile.]]
* '''Subverted''': Characters use a fictional form of birth control and pregnancy results anyway.
* '''Double Subverted''': Turns out it is a case of false pregnancy (all the symptoms, but no child).
* '''Parodied''': ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve used as birth control... And it works!
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes the characters use realistic birth control, other times fantasy birth control, and other times no birth control.
** The characters use only real forms of birth control
** [[IdealizedSex Birth control is not dealt with in the story.]]
* '''Enforced''': The setting of the story is obviously a fantasy one, where everything is different than RealLife.
* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': A magic-user sets out to invent a birth control spell.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': "In the wizarding world, we have spells for that." "Spells, schmells. I'd rather stick with what I know."
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Deconstructed''': It doesn't work that way...and may the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief depending on the context of the story. [[MissConception And there may be people stupid enough to believe it actually works in the audience.]]
