The decision to stop natural procreation was a fairly recent one (relative to Kryptonian history) and related to overpopulation concerns. Why would they neuter themselves? What if the population stabilized and they wanted to return to the old way of doing things?
I believe that something consistent with everything we saw, that wasn't addressed, and that would probably be quite reasonable, would be that Kryptonians were sterile due to the presence of some contraceptive in their systems. As the preeminent scientist, perhaps Jor-El then counteracted that in himself and Lara?
That would make sense.

I liked Lois Lane's portrayal (except for the "are we measuring our dicks?" line. It totally went against character).
Not out of character in the least. It's exactly what the 1930s Lois might have said if given the chance. Think classic Kathryn Hepburn, or Rosalind Russell in the newspaper film "His Girl Friday". That's Lois.
Loved that line. That was one of the first things that really made me appreciate Adams' Lois and her "take no shit" attitude, which is perfectly in line with the best depictions of the character.
