Ovulation: Length of the calendar month does not affect chances of pregnancy. Women typically have 28 day cycles but some women may have longer or shorter cycles. Menstrual cycles may not coincide with the calendar days as well. Time of ovulation and having intercourse at time of ovulation is what determines chances of conceiving that month.
