Cycle adds menstruation and woohoo risk as problems your sims must deal with. Trying for babies is no longer so easy, and having a night of ecstasy with your partner is no longer so safe. Use caution to avoid unwanted rug rats or carefully track your sim’s fertility in order start a family.
Note: This mod plays best with long or even paused lifespans. Those of you who enjoy playing with many generations of sims; this mod is likely not a good match for you.
v1.1.3 ChangesFixed bugs

FeaturesSimulates the menstrual cycles of sims who should have one.Adds negative moodlets that can appear when a sim starts their period.Pregnancy can now only start if a sim woohoos while fertile.Teenagers can now get pregnant through their ‘mess around’ interaction if they are not careful.Regular woohoo is now dangerous, sims must now buy protection, avoid woohoo on fertile days, or risk it with the withdraw method.Use the cycle tracker phone app to keep track of fertility and menstruation.
Note: That a this mod supports another mod is not an endorsement or recommendation of that mod.Wicked Whims by TURBODRIVER – Cycle has basic support for Wicked Whims. I’m not interest in keeping a constant watch on this mod to make sure the support still works, send me a message if a new version isn’t working.
Incompatible ModsMC Woohoo by Deaderpool – This causes the try for baby interactions to not consider fertility. Normal woohoo works as intended, but use of the risky woohoo setting will likely cause this to break too. This mod would be supported right now, but the creator felt the need protect their MOD FOR THE SIMS 4’s source code as if its a big government secret.Slice of Life (Menstrual Cycle Module) by kawaiistacie – You only need to delete the menstrual cycle module, everything else should work fine. Leaving the menstruation module in will cause your sims to have two cycles at once. Nothing is lost by using this mod instead, the Slice of Life version is relatively simplistic.

Q: How can I adjust long a menstrual cycle should last?
A: Click any sim and go to NeonOcean > Cycle > Mod Settings. Once you’ve entered the mod settings dialog go to Time Settings > Reproductive Speed.
Q: How many days should I set cycles to last for?
A: Generally, I recommend setting it to as long as you think you could be bothered to wait for. I think about 8 days is the best mix of not having to wait for ever and not having a sim’s fertile window be too short.
Q: How short could I reasonably make a cycle last?
A: All though you are allowed to go to about as low as 1 day, I do not recommend less than 3 days. At around 3 days or less, you will start to experience some issues. For example, your sim’s periods might be too short for the effects to actually appear. If you elect play with such short cycles, the use of quick mode basically required in order to have the any possibility of pregnancy.
